GTX 460 with a Q6700

Hi all, I plan on upgrading my graphics card to a GIGABYTE Super Overclock Series GeForce GTX 460 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125345). I have a 350W PSU which I will replace with a APEVIA ATX-AS520W-BK 520W ATX Power Supply (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817148008).

So I have a few questions:
1. is the PSU compatible with the 460
2. will my CPU (Q6700 @ 2.67 ghz) or RAM (6GB DDR2-800) create a bottleneck at high load
3. is the 460 a good choice in the $200-range for games like BFBC2/MW2/BO or is there another card I should look at

For reference I'm running a stock HP m9340f PC.

Thanks :)

    This is one of the best if not the best psu manufacturers out there and will be infinitely better than the one you picked. -----> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151094

    You might need to give that q6700 a mild overclock to around 3.0 to 3.2 to alleviate any possible bottleneck.
  2. go with the power supply sportsfanboy suggested. and i doubt ur cpu will be a bottleneck to the gtx 460.

    btw i think the gtx 460 has the best price to performance ratio amongst all the nvidia card
  3. no real bottleneck there. sure you will get a few fps extra from overclocking though in some scenarios
