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. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
