  1. 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-BX80616I3540/dp/tech-data/B0031M9QZ4/ref=de_a_smtd < will easily handle all the latest games + video editing programs.

    Motherboard to go with the CPU > http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157190&cm_re=ddr3_2133-_-13-157-190-_-Product < 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=N82E16820104223&c=CJ < 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
  3. 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
