Default Will my GPU run MW3 & Battlefield 3?

I was on the Nvidia website and it said I needed a 560 to run both games... Do you think my GTX 460 can play both games at max settings? What if I overclock it?

Battlefield 3 - Is Your PC Ready? - GeForce

Thanks.

I'm rocking a GTX 260 Core 216 with BF3 and don't have any complaints. You ought to cruise right along. I'm not sure about max settings, but you won't lack for eye candy.

Sounds like no matter what you are going to buy the game. I would just buy it without ordering a new video card, test it and see if it runs good enough, and if not then buy a new one, sell your old video card on ebay or sell it to a friend. Let us know how the game runs.
