Metro is the single most gpu demanding game on the market today. A single 460 is what's holding you back.

It's only holding you back if you want to max out Metro or maybe Crysis and never drop below 60fps. I heard that Metro is also poorly optimized, though I haven't played it myself.

If your GPU plays everything you want at settings that are adequate to you, then there's no problem.

Metro is equal if not harder to max out than Crysis. If you don't have something along the lines of a Core i5/Core i7 and a GTX 570/480 equivalent, you won't be able to max it out. I'm talking 60fps here.

And yes, Metro is poorly coded.

For gaming this thing eats everything for lunch. Most 2500ks will do close to 5 GHz, so yes they're worth it as overclocking chips.

yeah but what was the q running at? Mine at 3.42 is pretty damn quick compared to the really slow 2.4ghz stock speed. Haha i tried to get into metro and cant...as soon as i got out of the tunnels the game got complicated and annoying not to mention depressing so im unistalling it. Why is everyone *****ing about the crysis 2 demo, the graphics look great and i have it maxed out and it never drops below 30fps.

I would love to upgrade but i just dont have the cash at the moment.

Because it's clearly a console port, and the demo is in dx9.
