My System Specs


I do appreciate all the input guys, keep it coming

Here's the dollars and cents of it; final cost to me factoring in sale of my 260 and rebates
gtx460 768m about $42 (asus, stock speeds, 3 year warranty) or $53 (evga, superclocked, lifetime warranty)
gtx460 1g about $71 (stock speeds)
6850 1g about $76
560ti 1g about $168.

When I calculated earlier that the 460 was $25 cheaper, it was with an SE version, my bad.

So the 560ti would cost me about $100 more. I don't think it would be cost effective performance wise at my resolution.

So definitely a cheap upgrade with a 768m gtx460, could get a year out of it. Would it be worth the extra $20 or so for a 1g 460 or a 6850 at my resolution? Possible future crossfire with the 6850.
