Hi all, i am looking to upgrade my gfx card from a gts250 to a gtx 460 on a pci x16 1.1 slot, will this cause a major bottleneck?

My system specs are

E6750 @ 3.6 with titan fenrir cooler
700w corsair psu
gigabyte p35 ds3 mobo
2 x 2g ocz reaper 1066
windows vista home premium
1tb samsung spinpoint hd


any help would be greatly appreciated.

ps just to add will upgrade in 6+ months to a new mobo and cpu.

will a 460 be bottlenecked by pci x 1.1 ... probably a bit but probably nto at a notcable percentage if it were like a 480 yea it'd matter but in a 460 unlikely so i'd say you're good
