  1. Thanks for your advice malmental.i often play call of duty black ops and some MW2, and i use a 20inch widescreen asus monitor at 1600x900 resolution.i think if i do try overclocking my CPU i will need a better heatsink,i just have a basic low profile(zerotherm) heatsink and fan now.will my CPU run well with the GTX 460 at stock speeds??.thanks again for your help...from mrclownface
  2. It will run well, no need for overclocking. Even if you overclocked your CPU, the dfference would be minimal, IMO. Stop worrying, start playing :)
  3. great thanks alot,regards,mrclownface :sol:
  4. Get Gtx 560 when it comes out,that gpu will be bang for buck,i am willing to bet on it.
  5. thats a good idea to also keep down the cost,i can get the EVGA GTS 450 at a good price,thanks for the help :)
