The 460 is by far a faster card, though if you can afford it I would go with the 1GB version as that is ~ 10 - 20% faster than the 768mb version.

Older review but none the less will demonstrate how far superior the 460 is, with driver updates since it would only get faster: http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/gra...b-gpu-review/7

If you need more convincing - it has lower idle power consumption, and lower heat out put - it generally wins any where from 3 - 18fps

this is right but is there any reason you want to go with older generation cards?

A 6770 is a re-badged 5770 which is still equally as slow - a 550ti is slower than a 5770, and the 6790 is barely faster than a 6770 - just because a 460 is "older" doesn't mean that it isn't by far faster than any of the above suggested

[it is produced on a GF116 die which is currently used in the 560ti]

I know what you mean but for about the same price there are a lot more options, some being newer gen cards that support DX11 and i know that DX11 isnt a big deal to some but still would you not prefer a newer card? I wouldnt call it future proofing because i dont believe theres such thing but its more 'future proof' than an older card...

EDIT: I get what youre saying about the 460 but its in a whole other price range

EDIT2: HAHAHAHAHA why am I talking about 460s and 5770s as if they dont support dx11? lol my bad. point still valid though - new tech

This really worries me about the advice you're giving - you do understand that a GTX 460 is a current generation DX11 card right? No one is suggesting a 260, 275 etc.

The OP is asking which of those is the better card - the 460 768mb is by far the best card thus far suggested (beating out the 5770/6770/90, and 550ti by wide margins)

So in a similar price range to the 460 is the HD6870 which seems to significantly outperform the 460 according to : http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...ing-study.html
