    you will get a botleneck, though less of one since you have overclocked, it is still a good choice of upgrade ass you will get much better performance from a GTX 760 from GTX 460.

    The GTX 660Ti or 7870 (or R9 270/X for new series AMD), seems to have little bottleneck and great performance.
  2. Hi thanks for the quick reply so would you reccomend me me upgrading to a GTX 660TI for the best all round performance with my proccesser it seems to be £65 cheaper too according to amazon and ebay would i be able to play games on high settings with at least 40FPS i will also look into the AMD cards you suggested i want to get at least another year out of my pc before i do a whole new computer build
  3. high settings for games, yes. The games you listed it should handle them fine also. Not all games will be able to go on high, and with modern day games, ultra won't happen.

    Thanks for responses i think i will just get the GTX 760 or equivalent and deal with the tiny bottleneck for now and look into replacing my board and CPU within the next 3- 6 months or so then i can just move a perfectly good card to a newer system without needing to purchase a newer card thanks :-)

  5. great choice to get GTX 760 and upgrade later, you will get much better FPS from the GTX 760, even with a bottleneck.
