Welcome to Tom's Forums! :) 

Okay you've got a GTX 460, nice GPU! What's your budget {CPU + MOBO + RAM} and will you ever want to add a second or third GPU?

Heres an excellent CPU > http://www.amazon.com/Intel-Processor-3-06GHz-LGA1156-B... < will easily handle all the latest games + video editing programs.

Motherboard to go with the CPU > http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... < if you ever decide you want a faster rig... all you gotta do is buy an i5 or i7 CPU and stick it in this bad boy.

RAM that nicely compliments this build > http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... < can go upto 8GB with this mobo... and also use faster DDR3 modules if ever needed.

The GPU you have is great... so no need to throw anymore $ away.

All said... it should cost you under $240

Hard to do w/o a budget, but given the 460.....I'll assume $500 .... it's not the "best" as you asked for (that would involve an i7 and $300 MoBo and 3 sticks of RAM) but it's an upper end match choice for ya vid card. Thave included a CPU cooler cause I expect you'll be OC'ing

$150 - Asus Sabertooth 55i

$209 - Intel i5-760

$40 - Scythe SCMG 2100

$5 - Shin Etsu

$80 - 2 x 2GB DDR3-1600 for overclocking potential and CAS 7
