Even if you don't get the rebate it is only 140 dollars, and this is not the only gtx 460 you can get for 140 dollars.
A gtx 460 only Loses a little bit to a gtx 560 ti in game.
DO YOUR RESEARCH!!! (no offense though
I would also look at the hd 6850 if you are looking to get bang-for-buck value, although a 6850 with a good 2 fan cooler will be a bit more expensive than a 460, and have the same in game performance. You could get a hd 6850 2gb, but that would cost even more.
Im ordering the parts on thursday from Novatech. I took your advice on the GPU and im going for the 6870,the CPU will have to do as im still on a budget , i can always upgrade later thanks for all your help guys :] !
Yes all these are compatible.. look like you're not serious gamer....if possible go for 6850 or 6870 Video ( 7750 / 7770 is out so the price drop on 68xx Series)
then may last for longer...
is only up to you change 2400 to 2500k or not .... the price in Canada is so close ... that 's why most people go for 2500k...
if you get a 7770 the price is pretty much the same at $160-170. people are saying though if you are getting anything under the 7970 you might as well get a 6850, not true, performance difference isn't that big unless your using a pci-e 3.0 slot from what I'm getting out of it.
