Default Looking at Upgrading Video Card again

Simple Question.

I am looking at upgrading my video card and probably the begining of the year upgrading my cpu/mb/ram. Should I go with a gst450 or gtx460?

My monitor max is 1440x900. Just want to be able to play some of the newer games, and watch some blu-ray...

Thanks

K

Go with the GTX 460 even the 768mb version is better then the fastest GTS 450.IMO and if you are just running at 1440 x900 then the 768mb should be plenty.

Thanks,

Yeah unfortunately thats the max my monitor can go.

Been seriously considering finding some extra money and upgrading my CPU/MB/RAM first now and then doing the video cards at the new year, just not really sure what I want to do anymore.

Thanks for the help though, if I go with a new Vid Card then 460 it will be.
