    Cant decide between GV-N460SO-1GI and GV-N470SO-13I . Will there be big difference in performance between them? is there a reason to pay extra 130$ for gtx470 or gtx460 will be enough?
    Can i play all modern games with gtx460 on full graphics options with normal fps?

    Sorry for my english.

    No, it's totally not worth it paying the extra $130. Get the GTX 460 SO.

    better than the GTX470 SO, is the 560 Ti SO (awesome card) or a HD6950 1gb.

    otherwise tbh I'd pick up a baseline GTX460 and overclock it yourself, the speed of the SO model is attainable by 99.9% of GTX460's and most go higher.

    the SO model is clocked at 815/1630/4000, my Gigabyte OC variant (costs MSRP) clocks to 900/1800/4400.
