I don't know how that could really do anything. It's most likely your cpu and gpu. Gtx 460 is kinda old, and se version is definitely what you are not going to be trying to game with. If I were you, I would over clock your cpu, and if you don't have a aftermarket heatsink, I suggest you get the CM Hyper 212. Either one. And also, upgrade your gpu, to something better like a 7850 / 7870. If you can't afford those, get a 650 ti / 7770. I think there might be a 660 ti for only $95 though. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>System Bottleneck> Related ressources: ForumSystem bottleneck -gaming ForumWhat is the bottleneck in my system ?
