  1. if its the same price then I would go for it...thats like a free performance upgrade then. you would be looking at about a 35% performance increase with a standard clocked 460 over the 4870...I would def go for it..unless you have money to burn and want to pick up something with alot more umph...but I have a feeling the 460 would be fine for you bc you were able to work with a 4870 for this long

    ok so how do you think it would do in BF3 at 1920x1080

    here is a review it puts the standard clock 460 at about 40fps avg at 1080p with no AA

    with since yours is overclocked to begin with you will see slightly higher performance.
