Default Anyone done the upgrade from a 8800 GTX to 460 GTX?

I have someone who would like to buy my current 8800 GTX for $90, and I am considering taking his offer and picking up a 460 GTX 1GB. Currently, there are a lot of newer games that my current card just doesn't have enough oomph to handle at 1920 x 1200. Will the 460 GTX give me a noticeable boost over my current card? Are there any review sites that pit the 460 and 8800 against each other?

Thanks in advance for any help, I am really trying to figure out if this is an upgrade or just a sidegrade.
System Specs:

Intel QX6700 @ 3.2 Ghz

8 GB Corsair Dominator 8500
MSI TwinFroz GTX 470
Soundblaster X-Fi

Dell FPW2405 LCD
