cooler master 922 case

Right now im looking at the http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814130758 . I am also thinking about waiting for the 6** series but i don't know if it is worth it because i don't have a pci 3 mobo.
I am planning on playing GW2 hopefully at max to near max settings, SWTOR, Skyrim, maybe BF3 and what ever new games come out in the future.
Thanks all for any help

As a Kepler card will be just fine in a PCI-E 2.0 slot and will probably give you more of a jump in performance for your dollars, waiting for those to launch is honestly not a bad idea.

I'm in the same boat. I'm going to wait a lot longer though, I want to see how Kepler fares and what is on the horizon shortly afterward. The 560 Ti 448 is a great card, but so close to the release of a new generation, and with a pretty good card in your machine already, I don't think its worth it personally. I think its a good bet that you can get a better step up for the money from the GTX 6xx's.
Have you overclocked your 460? If not, that's a good option to tide you over for another measly month or two. Its a wonderful card for overclocking; I've got mine running at 870 MHz core/2000 MHz memory and barely 65°C under load. I'm not in a huge rush; Battlefield 3 runs great for me at 1080p, provided Anti-aliasing Deferred is off.
