Currently i have these parts and i would like to know which i should upgrade to be able to play BF3/Dirt 3/Deus Ex/Newer titles with a decent frame rate on my 1280x1024 monitor. Preferably I'd like to upgrade within 200-250$.

Wait for the games to show up, no benchmarks yet.

Might as well upgrade that GPU to a DX11 card the next time you find one on a good sale. I got a 1gb 460gtx for my cousing last week for $100. Sweet.

Think its worth chipping in an extra 30 to pickup the 6850?

Also should i upgrade my processor? I feel like that will bottleneck the GPU :o .

Really? I feel like only 3.1gz without a l3 cache will bottleneck a 6850.

Nope it will run a single 6850 pretty fine, once you consider SLI'ing is when you need more horsepower under the cpu hood.

As for which GPU to get, get the one you like the best, the 460 and 6850 are about the same in performance and price. If you see one on a decent sale or rebate then go for it.
