Default vidro card compare and question

Please list these in order of importance.

Core Clock (MHz)
Shader Clock (MHz)
Memory Clock (MHz)
Memory Amount
Memory Interface
Memory Bandwidth (GB/sec)
Texture Fill Rate (billion/sec)

Reason, I'm thinking about changing my card.
GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB to GeForce GTX 460 1024MB.

Compare Current, I've had this for over 2 years now.
Sometimes I'll over clock it sometimes I don't, can't say I notice a difference ether way.

8800 GTS [stock]
Core Clock 500 (MHz)
Shader Clock 1200 (MHz)
Memory Clock 800 (MHz)
Memory Amount 320MB
Memory Interface 320-bit
Memory Bandwidth 64 (GB/sec)
Texture Fill Rate 24 (billion/sec)

To the GSX 460
Core Clock 720 (MHz) [45% faster]
Shader Clock 1440 (MHz) [20% faster]
Memory Clock 3600 (MHz) (Effective) [350% faster]??
Memory Amount 1024MB GDDR5 [220% more]
Memory Interface 256-bit [20% less]
Memory Bandwidth 115.2 (GB/sec) [80% faster]
Texture Fill Rate [couldn't find this] (billion/sec)

Number wise it doesn't look like that much better, but percentage wise it does.
or am I wrong?

I guess what I really want to know is, what is going to bottleneck first when gaming online playing games such as Bad Company 2. Which I'm playing a lot at the moment. Or could I just double up on my ram to 8GB.

I always seem to get mixed results when asking about video card performance.

Thanks for any input.
Phillip

the clock speeds on these two cards may be similar but you cannot compare performance of the two based on clocks. the reason why is because an 8800gt and a 460 gtx have very very different architecture which makes the 460 run much better than a 8800 GT. There can be a high end card and a mid to low end card with very similar clock speeds but it does not mean that they are going to run the same. If you get a 460 gtx would be a major major upgrade from a 8800 GT.


also what kind of cpu do you have that is what would tell you whether or not your going to bottleneck.
