the 460 would be a good step up from your current setup and it would be able to play at your desired settings

I don't think you'll see much of an improvement with that GTX460 over what you have now.

thanks for replies,is there not a big difference with directx11 then? something that always confuses me is this-do you get better graphics on high end graphics cards even if say the settings are set on high on the same game? i know that the better the card the higher you can go with settings but if the settings on say bc2 were all on high with my 9800gt sli and the same settings and game on the gtx 460 which would be better graphics? sorry for droaning on!

You'll get higher FPS with better cards if you don't raise the settings.
