Id recomend a new CPU or GPU.

If you have a 2 core AMD, get a 4 or 6 core.

If you have a good 4 or 6 core, get a new GPU like the Radeon 68xx series or 78xx/79xx series. Or nvidia 6xx series.

Thats pretty good. Try overclocking that,

Also, being that thats good, I'd recomend a new gpu.

Upgrades (better than the 460) are as follows:

Nvidia:
The same 758MB 460 (to use in SLI)
1gb 256bit GTX460 (cant sli with your current gpu)
Gtx470
GTX 480
GTX560 or 560 ti
GTX570
GTX580
GTX590
GTX650ti
GTX660 or 660ti
GTX670
GTX680
GTX690

AMD Radeon:
6850
6870
6950
6970
6990
7850
7870
7890
7950
7970
7980

Just on doing a weeks worth of reading up on overclocking my cpu before i touch anything.
Would you sli the same card as i can pick one up cheap would it make much difference. Or should i
go for the gtx 570 / gtx580 have they got a good couple of years before that will need changing.
Thanks for your help

Sli'ing your current card would give you the preformance of a gtx570 (580 if OC'ed)


your call.
