If you overclock your gtx 460 you get about the same performance (overclock to 850/1700/2000)
the gtx 460 is about as fast as a r7 260 (without x)

Runs Fallout 4 on medium settings pretty well. My card gets to about 130 - 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Would it be safe, or even worth overclocking?

You should be perfectly fine, just take it easy and know that you may shorten the life of your card this way.
