How cute.. if you want to imply that I'm in the same boat as OP, then you're only making me laugh.
He bought weak GPU's in the first place and wants to compensate getting an overkill CPU for his system which will essentially not make any difference compared to a mid-range 2500k in terms of gaming.
In my case, I've been having the Thuban pretty much since release and just recently got myself a GTX 590 since I will be going SB-E in 2 months anyway
It would be pointless to wait with the 590 purchase till I get SB-E seeing how it's a niche product thats quickly running out of stock and wont drop in price anyway; think rationally.
Oh and CPU limit can be overcome by turning as much GPU intensive settings on as possible, such as 32x AA, supersampling and what not, essentially running into GPU limit at some point, making no difference to a 2600k for example.
Can this be done if you have weak GPU's in the first place? Nope.
TL;DR: Try again.
EDIT: If he uses the 460's to bridge the gap till Kepler, then thats fine, but seeing how they're just around the corner (2012 Q1 or Q2) it still seems kinda like a waste to me, but thats me.Edited by toX0rz - 10/28/11 at 1:53am
