If you buy the 460 then get one with the 256 bit memory interface. Usually that is the 1 gb models.
Some of the video cards by different manufacturers will have different clock rates and might be called "over clocked" or "super clocked". The speed differences are not big differences from the basic stock models.
Installing the card is usually a drop in and go procedure. The modern bios will recognize the presence of a video card in the PCI-E x16 slot and then will bypass the on board video.
Go the the EVGA web site and look over the different models of 450 and 460 NVIDIA video cards. Check out the clock rates and memory bandwidth throughput.

Installing the new card is quite easy. Don't force it and just make sure that it site level in the slot and all the way down. The card bracket should sit flush down with the back motherboard bracket.
All of the 450 amd 460 might have clocking differences but get a 1 GB card w/256 bit memeory interface.
The Corsair HX 650 fit into my case. It's 5.9 by 3.4 by 5.9.

Nevermind. Everything is working great. What I did was install the PSU first, then ran the computer to make sure everything worked, then I installed the GPU. I had unplugged the 4 pin 12 volt connecter from the mobo to move it out of the way while i worked the card into the pci slot. I just forgot to plug it back in. Once I realized and corrected it everything works fine. I now run wow at 60 fps and higher on the ultra setting as compared to 20 and under at the lowest settings. So far everything has worked perfectly. Just wanted to thank everyone for there help and advice over the last couple weeks.
