You can get a 560ti and try overclocking them it's a good experience. Asus and Msi custom coolers are great for that.

Or you can go SLI later on, or right now.

Or you can get a 570 and call it a day.

Whatever sounds beautiful to you.

My suggestion ,Overclock the 460 GTX and you will be just fine. Now if you think that this isnt enough the only serious upgrade is only the 6970 or from nvidia 580 GTX.
*( an overlocked 460 is like 470 so the 570 or 6950 isn't an upgrade for me)

Manufacturers MSI for 580 and SAPPHIRE 6970

I'm on a budget though and not looking to spend that much. I have my eye on the MSI GTX560 ti Twin Frozr. What do you guys think?
