For gaming you probably should try upgrading the graphics card first . Games at high image details and resolution are almost always limited by the graphics card and not the processor .

Check your power supply can handle the new graphics card and then buy whichever on your list tat you can afford

Will it be a different from gtx 460 se to the gpu i've listed above? my power supply is 700w so i think i can handle those card in single well but idk about sli. so my cpu is ok right
