Hello, i don't know much about computers i mostly use mine for gaming. I wanted to buy a new video card this christmas. I'm currently using the nvidia geforce gt 220, which is an underperforming card from personal experience and some reviews. I was planning on buying an EVGA nvidia GTX 460 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130564&cm_re=Nvidia_GeForce_GTX_460-_-14-130-564-_-Product) What I wanted to know is whether or not my cpu could possibly trump the gpu and i'd end up with the same weak performance. Is gaming performance determined more by the graphics card or the cpu, or maybe both equally ? My cpu is an Intel E2180 dual cpu at 2.00 ghz

You'll definitely need to upgrade your CPU as well..my E1400 CPU (dual core 2.0 ghz) showed no difference between a 7600GT and an HD4650.
