Default 8800GTX Dying...GTX 460?

Hey everyone. Sorry about another "I have _____, should I buy _____?" thread, but I've been somewhat out of the hardware game these past few months. It looks like my 8800GTX might be giving up the ghost and I only have two precious weeks before SC2 is out!

So, is the 8800GTX -> GTX 460 jump worth it, or do I just try and get an RMA for the 8800? Keep in mind this is with the system in my sig - E4300 CPU @ 3.2GHz. The review benchies for the card look great and all, but that's with a Core i7/DDR3 base, not an aging C2D.

Raw spec numbers look great and there is large amount of overclocking potential, but again, I'm concerned my base system is going to hold me back from the true performance increases.

Thanks for your help. =)
