Hey guys, quite simple question. I read all of the reviews about best video card for the money and I have decided I want to get a Nvidia 460 GTX card but I want to make sure it wont be severely bottlenecked by my current system.

I'm running a
Core i3 530
Asus P7H55
Corsair 4GB DDR3 1333

"severely", no, but a faster CPU will free up higher frame rates with that card especially at high resolutions and detail settings.

Yeah, since the older I5's are going cheaper now due to Sandy Bridge, it may be worth selling the I3 and going for the I5 760.
