Default Re: Single GTX460 1GB worse than 8800GT 512MB SLI?

A new CPU would help your benchmarks .The i7 or i5 would increase your scores ,but that would mean a upgrade in the motherboard and memory.Just overclocking would help alot unless that all it will overclock.But looking at the benchmarks the GTX 460 should be just as if not faster in games. I had a E8400 that overclock to 4.4gis on air with a after market cooler and that increased my benchmarks quite a bit ,plus it had 6mb L2 cache.That would be the cheapest way to go to get better scores in games I don't know about unigine benchmark but a E8400 for $170 and overclock to 4 gigs and overclock your GTX 460 to around 800 you will see better marks.
