I suggest you to stay with gtx460 due to its better OC potential.

The 6850 is ahead of the 460 1gig in OCN´s graphics card rankings.

That's why you shouldn't follow OCN's rankings...the 460 is slightly faster, on par with a HD5850 and very close to the HD6870.

decided to use the 6850 for the time being since its using 2 fans and im using a 800d case... which makes the temps of this card 15 degrees cooler compared to the 460. lol
