Nevernevernever buy the 465, unless it's the first revision then you can bios flash it to a 470. The best bang for your buck right now is the 460, but if you'd like go for the 470. Your dual core may bottle neck the Fermi(400 series) cards though, not too sure. As far as 'whats the best brand?" there is no true answer. All answers will usually be given based on favoritism towards one brand over the other. I've always prefered Nvidia(eVGA), compared to going with AMD/ATI. But you'll hear the complete opposite from someone else
. If you're only running a dual core I would double check your power supply. Fermi cards are power hungry! ^^
Sorry for the quick post, off to take care of some things. Good luck with your purchase and if you have any more questions feel free to post.
