fermi and the 590 were bad cards. So far, nvidia has only had 2 good cards in the past 2 generations. The 570 and 460. eek.
The 460 is good and in fact the rest of the GTX 400 series is great too, because right now they are at an amazing price, and in terms of value they are way better than the newer GTX 500 series cards. They may not be as efficient but if you're buying a high-end card like one of these, efficiency isn't normally the first thing on your mind.
