ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I do live near a Micro Center, so I was thinking of picking up most of the parts that I was looking at there so I do not have to pay shipping and can get them asap. I would prefer to keep it in the lower range of that budget but if the performance increase is worth the extra cash that wont be a problem.

Everything Ive heard shows the 465 is crap. Get dual 470s or 460s. In the latest TH review on the 460 is outperforms or paces the 465 in damn near every bench.
