Gah, I would not feel comfortable spending that much. My bad, I should have specified that this is mostly a PS3/360 replacement, and I sold my PS3 to get as far as I have (I'd have sold my 360, but it died). I am looking for very modest upgrades, to widen the bottleneck on the 460 a bit. I would like to play with about max settings on GPU intensive games and with more modest settings on the more CPU intesive games, all at resolutions that would look nice on a 720p/1080i crt hdtv. Maybe 'til about 2014, when all of the newer generations of tech come out.
I appreciate the help though. Have a nice one!
