will gtx 460 in sli mode run properly on an asus p5n32e-sli mobo (680i) socket 775, my cpu is an intel q9450 with 12mb of l2 cache on it.

Just make sure you have an adequate PSU.

Thanks for your reply I was a bit confused because I read somewhere that you have to have an Intel i5 or i7 system otherwise the cpu could bottleneck the graphics card performance,is this true?

Well a more powerful CPU will help in some games, but a Q9450 is still a decent CPU,so don't worry much about bottlenecks(You also can OC it to squeeze more performance from it)
