Hello, i was thinking of buying a new video card for my setup my specs are

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400@ 3.0 Ghz

MoBo: Asus P5QL-EM

Ram: Kingston PC2-6400(400MHz) DDR2 2GB X2

i dont know what half that means im just copying off CPU-Z lol but i want to upgrade to either a gtx460 or a gtx470, would either be bottlenecked? or what is a better option

I don't think either would be "bottlenecked" ( :pfff:  ) so get whichever you can afford.

haha alright well im just askin cuz i read some other threads that had pretty much the same setup an they said it would be "bottlenecked" but its not that much diffrence in price between the two so im guessing the 470 would be a better upgrade performance wise?

As a single card solution then yes.

If your mobo support dual card then go with 2x GTX460, if you want a single card then go with GTX470. Just make sure you have enough power on PSU. :)

The Asus P5QL-EM is a micro board with only one PCIe slot and one PCI slot IIRC.
