They clock super nice as well, had my 460 hawks @ 950 core
They still clock nicely/bench compared to the 460.

Look for the open box 560's on newegg they're only $188, you have to be quick though because they're usually gone in minutes. Or you might get a good deal on a 2nd hand 560/460 for cheap in the for sale section.

If you can afford it the 560 is great, if you can't the 460 is still a great card. Just make sure you know the difference between the 3 different versions.

GPU overclock is based on the way the video card alone is made. This is why you can buy cards that already have overclocks on them.

I've heard rumors about the GTX 460 and it's " strange " problems.

Overall top-end speed of each card at max OC's (you can still OC the card regardless of motherboard) you're probably looking at like +10-30% FPS difference (depending on the game in question, and how good of OC'ers you got) in favor of the 560.

At the lower end of what's likely to be the average difference, around 15%, you're talking about a difference you're unlikely to ever see w/the naked eye (going from 50fps to 57fps, for example), and one which is unlikely to be large enough to allow higher 'max playable settings' on the faster card.

At the other end of possible average differences, say around +25% (going from 60fps to 75fps) you get into the range where maybe the 460 can play Crysis at VH w/2xAA, and the 560 can do it at the same FPS, but w/4xAA (or maybe even 8xAA).

So there's a chance you'll get higher playable settings with the 560 in certain games, but again it depends on how good of OC'ers you got in each case, and on teh game itself.

TBH the cards are identical in so many ways that the difference between them is going to be a 'base difference' of around +10% for the extra shaders and better z-culling on the 560, + the difference in clocks you're able to achieve w/your particular samples.

So look at prices where you'd be buying it, and take those numbers into consideration.
