Sadly no, I've only heard of 6950 being unlocked to a 6970.

But you could flash its bios to a 5870, this was an easy way to bump the voltage up slightly and have a stock 850mhz core/1200mhz mem (over its 725/1000 stock), however it didn't increase the stream processor count from 1440 to 1600.

then 5850 would be a better choice
but i am assuming your PSU is not a good quality one(not sure though)
so you might want to look into that too

and 5850 works fine with my vx450
dont know if 460 can run on that

5850 > 460 for gaming and general use


Unless you plan to fold in which case the 460 still folds faster (as do all nvidias)

I mean, I could save up and upgrade the CPU and PSU at the same time. It's only when I upgrade the CPU that it becomes a problem.

So I might get the GPU, then save up for a decent 650w unit and a CPU.

I occasionally fold but not often, this isn't a priority.

5850 beat 460 in SLI (I'm sure this is when first released on beta drivers)

A decent 550W PSU will do for a 5850 with 965 so I'm told; I've got a 650W HX and it powers ssd, 4 hdd, 965 with light overclock to 3.8, 2 x 5850, H50 cooler and a few USB periphs just fine

Already been stated, I'm sure, but the 460 beats the 5850 in DX11 games. Then again, the 470 is equal to it in most normal games and then dropkicks the crap out of it in DX11.

If I went for the cheaper Athlon II X4 640, which isn't much different, and is cheaper (not to mention a Phenom is probably overkill for me), with the 5870 my recommended figure is under 500w, which I'd be OK with.

Bad results. 5870 CF performing almost the same as a single 5850? Come on
