gtx 460 has CUDA and physx which will be useful in future i think. Tessellation is way better on gtx 460. I saw pictures from some review: gtx 460 is 3x better than 6870 in TessMark (tessellation)

The above posters were more than helpful to you. What do you expect from them? Covertcover inserted graphs from a very reputable site showing a fair comparison and Robillar gave legitimate information. Your post disgusts me...

Anyway, about comparing a superclocked 460 to a stock 6870... You are aware that the 6870 can overclock too, right....? It wouldn't cost you a dime too...

Think before you post and try to learn to respect other members of the community before creating another thread asking for help.

It is just a 460 chip that they put a better fan on and overclocked in the factory. You can just overclock it yourself quite easily...

hehe sorry and also yh the physx is looking uselesser and uselesser but stil cuda is actualy very helpful for editing but the thing is amd has started to advance their techonologys and yh the 6870 has very little clocking room like no more then 100 mhz in the luckiest cases but the soc and the talon can easily hit 1ghz but since im getting the directcu from asus hopefully it will clock better then the stock 6870

Damn dude. You didn't use any sort of punctuation. I mean this very rarely bothers me, but that's just one gigantic sentence...

And where have you seen Talon's hitting 1ghz? OCCT stable?

What do you mean the 6870s have very little overclocking room? The HD 6870s overclock extremely well. 1050MHz Core clock and 1200MHz Memory clock are pretty common overclocks for the 6870s. I don't know where you are getting some of your information from..

Also, punctuation is your friend.

Just get the regular hawk and overclock it:

around 40 less than most hd6870s at almost equal performance once overclocked.

+1 to both of his points.

And even if the 460 is overclocked the 6870 is still the better card.
