gtx 460 is a much better value considering they have similar performance.

They have the same architecture, the only difference is the clock speeds.

Given the ultra low prices of the 400 series, the 460 is going to be the better buy, unless you can get the 560 for under $150.

I'm pretty sure i've seen really cheap GTX 460s on OCN and open box on newegg so you should look for that but the GTX 460 is the one to buy since it will easily do the clocks the GTX 560 is at so there is no point wasting $30 for what is essentially an overclocked GTX 460.

GTX 460, since It's cheaper and it gives you about the same performance.

GTX 460, there to similar to negotiate getting a GTX 560 right now. As said, pretty much only difference is the clock speeds. http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards....=632&card2=657

You can find them used or on OCN for about 115, Give or take.

460, you might even be able to find a 2gb version for cheap if you look around.
