I'm currently trying to mine with an Nvida GTX460 but it's got a low hash rate.

I was thinking of buying a new HD 6870, but I wasn't sure if it's worth the investment. Anyone have any advice on this?

You should take a look at the ATI videocards on this list.
https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison

I would recommend a 5850 or a 6950
You might be able to find some used ones for about 100 to 150$

Nvidia makes great videocards for videogames, autocad but not for bitcoin mining due to having far less shader cores.

I looked at that list earlier. I chose the 6870 because it was readily available from ebuyer for £100 and I couldn't find a 5850 new.
I'll take a look on ebay for some used ones, thanks.

I have two 6870 and they both do +/- 300 MH/s on a 950 Mhz core clock.
Try to find one or two 5870, they do +/- 430 MH/s if you overclock them.
I run two VaporX 5870 on 930 Mhz.

I found this 6950 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/181111598959?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649 which looks alright. Was thinking about getting it instead.
