Hey guys its me again and I have 2 cards I have chosen, and I need u to campare it for ..if u please :) 
And thats it:
Asus ENGTX460 DirectCu TOP 768MB GDDR5/DDR5 - 155$
Palit GTX460 768MB GDDR5 - 190-200$
One of these is going to fit in MOBO G31M-S - I think it will be jsut fine, but I want u to take a look at it. Here is a link for the MOBO - http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?model=g31m-s
Going to be roomies with this PSU - DELL ATX-500W (its a picture -> ) http://www.mypicx.com/07062011/PSU_500W/
Gonna run with this CPU - Intel Core2 Duo 2,93GHz E7500, going to OC it at 3,6GHz I guess.. If Its possible..

Thanks from know :)

Just to let you know that your CPU will bottleneck the GPU. I won't recommend buying the GTX 460 unless you have plans on moving to a quad core like Sandy Bridge i5 and i7 series processors for utilizing the full potential of the GPU. Even if you can't afford that then upgrade your CPU to a minimum Q9550S for gaming or atleast a Q6600

And to answer your question, I would say go with ASUS ENGTX460

I will overclock it? i mean the CPU. A 3.6GHz I guess its okay but, but if i can oc it more.. I will, and i will change the motherboard, cpu next year.
what about the motherboard and PSU? can they handle the Asus?

Even overclocking the E7500 to the largest possible amount using aftermarket coolers will still bottleneck the GTX 460 ;)

Get the Asus, it's cheaper and unless one is overclocked (which you can do yourself) performance will be exactly the same. My secondary/HTPC has an E8500 (stock at 3.2g) and 1gb GTX 460. I play at 1680x1050 and my CPU is almost never a bottleneck, Starcraft II is the only game that bogs it down and thats only in huge marine arena games with like 1000 units on screen.

I would also go for the ASUS model but one thing you should be careful with is overclocking and trying to run the gtx 460 on that PSU but other than that everything is fine.

My resolution is 1280x1024. So damn it which one should I buy? An Asus GTX460 768mb or Sapphire HD6770 vapor-x?
I think I will be able to overclock my e7500 to at least 3.2GHz., but I want to be sure that there will be no bottleneck(OCed), dont want to waste my money.. for almost nothing!

Have you considered buying a new monitor? At your resolution the CPU will be a bottleneck for either of those so just get the cheaper one (likely the 6770).

no! get the gtx460, its much better than the 6770 and your cpu wont bottleneck it much at all, you will definitely see the benefits of the faster card in 90% of games.

Seen a lot of Dell power supplies over the years, never one with a label that looked like that.
It doesn't fall in line with what other Dell power supplies are capable of;
According to what I see on the label, 26 amps on a single 12v rail :o 
Dell 305w = 22a , 2 x 18a
Dell 375w = 30a , 2 x 18a
Dell 460w = 32a , 3 x 18a
Dell 525w = 34a , 3 x 18a
Any chance of a better picture of the entire label ?

^ in that case forget the 460, the 6770 uses less power and will run on that psu. The 460 with an overclocked cpu will push the psu's power limits over the edge possibly......

Did you see his resolution? There are very few games that he won't be pushing 60 fps with with a 6770 at that resolution if his CPU isn't holding him back. The GTX 460 is definately better, but it hardly seems neccesary for that low of a resolution.

Guys, I am getting an 6770 vapor-X going to change it in 2 years and I'm going to get an new entire build. I think I can use the 6770 even 3 years, I am at low res... that's it I am ordering it. No ******* sense pushing the limits of my old guy ... he can die :o 
Thanks for all replies :)
