    Question Upgrade from GXT 275 to GTX 460?

    Hi peps,

    My gaming rig currently has an GTX 275 (nvidia.co.uk/object/product_geforce_gtx_275_uk.html) and I was wondering if it makes sense for me to change to one of these GTX 460 OC (scan.co.uk/products/768mb-gigabyte-gtx-460-oc-3600mhz-gddr5-gpu-715mhz-shader-clock-1430mhz-336cores-2x-dvi-mhdmi)? Sorry cant post links yet

    Some of the stats are better on each so I'm not sure which would be best for playing only games such as BC2, BF3 and Crysis etc as these are the type of top end FPS I play all the time.

    The GTX 275 is great in game and I have no problems with it as it gives me great FPS on all my games, I get about 80-100 FPS on BC2 depending on the map. I was just wondering if it would be worth upgrading to the GTX 460 linked above or if it wouldn't make much difference?

    Thanks in advance,
    Nath

    Hello,
    I was considering a similar upgrade a few weeks ago, but I was going from a heavily overclocked and overvolted GTX 260 which basically became a slightly overclocked GTX 275. If im perfectly honest with you it wouldn't be a massive improvement to justify the £. Don't get me wrong it would be an improvement, but only a very slight one.
    Hope this helps
    Richard.

    Yup as mentioned above I doubt you'll see any significant improvements. The only reason to buy would be for DX11 and this would be at a slight cost (if you sold your GTX275 to cover part of the cost)

    I've had my GT275 for several months now and it is a superb card. Runs pretty quiet and not had any slowdown on many games.

    Thanks for the replies guys

    I did think the same when it comes to not getting much more out of the upgrade but wasn't sure if its worth it just for dx11? My FPS with the GTX275 is awesome on all games (about 90-100 avg on BC2) so it would be just for a switch to dx11 really.

    But I think from the two replies above and basically the same from a member of my clan I will prob just wait for a while until I need a real upgrade as £120 just from moving to dx11 is a bit much lol.
