Why are you assuming I'm taking it personal? Maybe I'd be interested in buying a 3rd 460, especially if I could get it for 120 USD.

Maybe I'm also interested in preventing misinformation from flooding these boards.

I asked an honest question. If you say you can buy 460s for 120 dollars, and someone asks you "where" you should be able to provide them with links, yes? If not you're just spreading nonsense.
Why upgrade?

OP: You need to give us a price range. Until then you'll get answers like "gtx580x2"

Mothrpe: Warranties rarely transfer. People place far too much value in used (and almost 100% certainly abused) hardware.

levontraut: 2 450s aren't a good idea.. they barely outperform one 460, and everyone knows 1 GPU is preferable to a dual GPU setup. I like my SLI but I'm not pretending for a second my setup is superior to someone with 1 GTX 580.
Newegg has them after MIR: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121391

My price range is around £50 to £100 at the moment.

With a 22' monitor-your options are
budget-a 5670 (or the new GT 440?)will play games fine @ 1680x1050-may have to lower some settings in some games.Also 9800 GT/X's and 4850's are still available if u can do without DX11
better- A GTS 450 or HD 5770 would be able to max games at your resolution
best-A GTX 460 1GB or a 6850
the Asus GTX 460 1GB linked above is a good buy as long as it is $149 before rebates(rebates don't really count as you still need the money to make the purchase)

Here is an ASUS GTX 460 - 768MB.
SCAN: £113.35
I mean, with 2GB extra RAM of that HyperX stuff you got, this GTX 460, crank the res down a tad and this will be great for you man.

May I suggest craiglist. I found unbelievable value for top notch graphic cards there. You'll find something of great value for 30-50% less than retail
