Um, Yes a little, but still get the GTX 460. It is good. An OC to say around 3.3 - 3.5Ghz would help alot. :D

Not at all, dual core CPU's don't bottle neck single GPU's cards. Still, if you think it can, you can always make a safe overclock to your current CPU(by safe overclock I mean a slight overclock)

At lower resolutions the GPU is utilised less than playing at full 1080p resolutions, and more dependency is put onto the CPU. What resolution are you gaming at?

1 gig 460 or 768 ?

the memory bendwidth being different 256 bit on the 1 gig, 192 bit on the 768

i think the 768 would not be bottlenecked at all, and the 1 gig might be slightly (nothign a small overclock wouldn't fix though) also the bottleneck would be slight and onyl effec tperformance by a small margin really you're good with either card

Thanks everyone for your support.
Now i get that my GPU will be bottleneck to very small extent n i may neglect it.
I am gaming at 1280 x 1024.
N i am going to buy 1GB wit 256-bits of memory bandwidth.
