Avoid that card at all cost, it is slower than the 4xxx series of cards. I know from experience.

If so, temporarily disable it, to see if game play improves.

Its close, but the 5850 is slightly faster.

But being as these cards are in the $180-$190 range .. you may be just as well off getting the GTX 560 if you go Nvidia for the same price or close to.
it will depend on what brand name you want to go with.

The 460 and 560 reccomend a 450W PSU with 24amps.
to be honest price wouldn't matter & all i want is a card that will be appropriate for my pc so no lame bottle necking happens you know.
i have a 480w PSU, but not sure about the amps

If price isnt much of a issue, between these 2, Id just look at the GTX560 then over the 460.

The 560 is the new generation of the 460. A bit faster.

I dont understand how would it be slower if mine a 4650 and the clocks are lower

the only 5xxx series cards worth getting are the 5850 and 5870.
Otherwise you might as well stick with what you have, the difference will barely be noticeable.
