More about bottleneck
  1. your cpu is fine.
  2. I would be more concerned about the PSU, your CPU is fine.
  3. the 560 standard is a revised 460. The card is a great overclocker and I would push for some headroom.
  4. Blackhawk has it right. A GT220 uses insignificant power; a GTX560 needs a quality 450W PSU (I'd get 500W if only because I'd rather not use adapters for one of the PCIE power connectors). Cheap generics (e.g. Logisys, Diablotek) need not apply.
  5. Thanks guys,can I upgrade my PSU?
