    Cores aren't what matter to me the most. Technically dual cores are still the most efficient processors on the market (for gaming). Anyway that CPU isn't something I don't want to get or trade for. My worry was the RAM. I was a little clueless on which one to get. And I am pretty sure my PSU is okay. I will have to use some of the 4 pin to PCIe converters I have so no biggy. I also want to stick with that mobo. I want to SLI two GTX 460's.

    Thanks for your reply. I appreciate your help. :)
  4. Also, how do you get your computer specs to show under everything you post?

  6. Sell, your GTX 460, get a GTX 570 or GTX 560ti 448, switch your MB to a Z68 MB.
