Also, driver support is fine. Just don't use driver sweeper. Just uninstall, then install the new drivers. Shouldn't be a problem. Only issue i had was Quad crossfire scaling on my old 5970s

I have everything done besides the graphics.

Currently looking at GTX460 1gb, 6850 1gb & 6870 1gb.

Oh boy what one to get?
If those are the choices then I'd go MSI R6870 Hawk Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5. I had the Twin Frozr II card and it was a great card. The Hawk is a bit more overclocked.
