Call of duty black ops is coming out soon and i think its time for an upgrade. what do you guys think looking at my specs. I think the best route is just upgrade my vid card to a gtx 460. Everything else there is still pretty good and it wont bottleneck my computer. Am i correct?

Yup. I think a GTX460 would be a great upgrade for your PC, and that Q6600 is more than enough, although you could squeeze more out of it my overclocking.

I say get a GTX 470. It's hotter, but it's also a noticeably superior performer over the 460. But yeah, it's much more expensive too.

Then again, you could look at it on the flipside that a GTX460 will Max/High most modern games, especially from the COD series, and he could always add another one later on if he want's a boost.

I wish i can add another. When i built my comp i didnt get an sli board.
I did oc my cpu to 3ghz. I was thinking upgrade to a 460/470 have the 8800gt sitting around and when i do build a new comp move the 460/470 to it probably add another one and put the 8800gt back. How much of a difference will i see from a 460 to 470. How big of a difference is that from an 8800gt

The 470 is approximately 20-25% "better" than the 460. But in comparison to the 8800GT? I would guess that it might be like going from a power scooter to a Ferrari.

The cheapest gtx 460 1gb is by sparkle for 220 and an evga 470 1280mb is 304.99. So for call of duty is the 80 bucks worth it?

Is your Q6600 a G0 if so I have had great success in overclocking mine. I also agree that a 470 sounds like a better idea.
