Nah, they should work fine together, unless you have one of those lava breathing super OC cards, a but a stock or near stock 460GTX will be just fine. sportsfanboy a b à CPUs November 13, 2010 12:50:32 PM Believe it or not, my q6600 was the bottle neck to my gtx 285 until around 3.1ghz. I recommend overclocking that chip to an easy 3.0ghz or so if you can.
