He's talking about the RX 460, not GTX 460. The RX 460 is marginally more powerful than the R7 265. Also please don't use GPUboss, it's terrible.

Here are actual benchmark results where the RX 460 comes out slightly ahead of the R7 370, which is a rebadged and higher clocked R7 265.

OP, it's not really worth replacing. It's not an upgrade you'd really notice in practice.

Good catch, not sure how I missed that. LOL, Guess that's what I get for trying to answer a question after being up for 26 hours...

GPUBoss, isn't great, but I've found that sometimes they can give a decent glimpse for comparison. But it's mainly useful for newer and more popular cards.

To the OP: The main difference would be the power usage, the RX 460 will be a fair amount lower. If you want a true upgrade a 1050ti or RX 470/570 or above would be the best route, though the 470\570 might be hard to find and find at a decent price due to the mining craze again...it was nice when the GPU mining trend had died for a while.
