I have a Palit GTX460 1GB Sonic Platinum graphics card, a ASUS P7P55 LX motherboard with a PCI Express 2.0 x 16 slot, Coolmaster HAF 922 case, and a 850 w power supply. I have spent hours researching to see what would be a good upgrade, but it gets confusing with all the different cards. Anyone know a good upgrade?

thanks in advance.

Hd 7850 would be a great upgrade. It starts out at 200 dollars.

Well it depends on your budget and just how much faster you want it to be. If you don't want to spend too much I would recommend the 7850 which is faster than your card by quite a lot (doesn't hurt that it's the best overclocker on the market!) and is relatively cheap. If you want more speed I would recommend the 7870 LE which is very cheap for it's performance bracket.

Hm, the HD 7850 requires a PCI Express 3.0 slot. I honestly know little about hardware, but not sure if that will work in my PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot.

PCI-E is backwards compatible, it will work.

The 7850 supports PCI Express 3.0, it still works fine in PCI Express 2.0, so in the future if you upgrade to a motherboard with PCI Express 3.0 it would benefit you.
