    Get the 460, i'm able to play crysis at max settings (no AA) in 1080 and it's pumping out frames between 25-40 very happy to the point i even recorded videos to watch back lol

    Your psu is fine by the sounds of it, the box states at least a 450 min psu

    better, than mine anyway, but i heard games rely more on the gpu these days anyway. its really hard to decide between a 6850 and a gtx 460!

    The card Razer bought is on Today Only for £141!

    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Same here that thing looks tichy, same size as my 7900gs after I stuck a big aftermarket cooler on it.

    I can fully understand that

    You could keep the gtx260 for physx, it's very easy to do however it's total overkill for the few games that use physx.

    The rocket sled demo is about the only thing that would come close to giveing it any stress.
    If you really want a physx card then I'd sell the gtx260 and get a 9800gt instead.

    I wouldn't use it for PhysX - it would just be for Folding, 150W max for PhysX alone is too much.

    Surely the gtx460 would be better for folding?

    Funny the way folding has gone from "donate your idle processing to a good cause" and is turning into "competitive sport / e-peen contest"
