Yeah, Ill keep that in mind.

So I'm doing some research on the graphics cards and finding that the GTX 460 SE is slightly more powerful then the 650. The 460 has a slower clock but faster Memory bandwidth and Pixel rate, and a little more power consumption. While the 650 would have better Texel rate (AA rate) and a slightly lower power consumption.

Doing more searching is finding that yeah the 460SE even if its slightly worse then a 460 itself is still faster then a 650 Ti which comes in slightly better then a 450/550 which the 460 is much better then in tests. (According to the interwebs). So I'll consider it or see if I can scrape the extra 40 for a 7850 or 7870 (to much). Partly becuase at the moment seems like the safest bet,and i can get out of my comfort zone/get experience working with ATI's incase I need to fix a pc with them.

The Free games is a plus, I was looking forward to Bioshock already, and Tomb Raider looked interesting. As for deciding which machine to put it in Ill cross that bridge later.
