Hey guys,

I had a quick question about upgrading my graphics card. Right now I have a gtx 260 core 216 and I was hoping to upgrade when the new ati 6xxx series comes out. I have a Dell R849J Motherboard with one PCI express x16 slot. I was interested in getting the gtx 460 1GB version.

Will this motherboard bottleneck this graphics card or any of the new ati 6xxx series cards?

P.S. The full specs of my system are:

core i7 920 @3.0GHz
6 GB DDR3 at 1067MHz
Geforce GTX 260 Core 216
640GB Serial ATA 2 Hard Drive 7200 RPM
Thermaltake 850W

Thanks in advance : )
