Why?? The 460 and 5830 are near the top of the line. The x6 isn't that great compared to a i7 950 or higher. Sure its 6 reasl cores, but its an economical 6 core.
For most people the acheivable frame rates from theses 2 cards are very acceptable. Plus with gpus progressing as they do, its the cheapest thing to keep a system updated.
Oh, and you do realize a 5830 and 6870 have near the same specs with the 6870 being 60mhz faster.
