Don't get a Ipad, touchpad, or anything pad for that matter, they're over sized cell phones that don't make calls. Upgrade your computer or take a girl out on a nice date.

Upgrade your GPU if you're planning on playing BF3. Sell your 460 and get a GTX570 or 6970!

Edit: or just SLI another 460 like the above poster mentioned
