This card seems awesome. I'm tempted to sell my 5850 and get 460 1GB SLI. I'll hold off on that though. 5850 is fine for now. I just want to get into 3D vision.

The Gigabyte 1GB is 239$ regular price, this is in special until 27 after that it's 380$... I even saw it cheaper. It's even 225$ at BestDirect.ca

A GTX 470 is a lot better than a 460. For a small price difference, it's worth getting the better card.

Unless you're choked about power requirements or heat, that GTX 470 is the deal of the century.
