I'm using the G530 CPU and I intend to upgrade the VGA to GTX 460. I've asked for opinions from other forums and they said that it could be a huge bottleneck when combining them. They said that the highest GPU for me is the GTS 450. What do you think? Please show me some suggestions.
My full spec is
GA-H61M-S2PV (rev 2.0)
GPU: ASUS nVidia GTS 450 GDDR3
2x2 GB 1333 KingMax Memory
Acbel 550W CE2

Shouldnt be too big of a bottleneck with single threaded games but multithread may get tricky.
Have you thought of an I5 upgrade?
7970 3GB *Unlocked* = 8 Threads
5770 1GB OCed = 2 Threads

Dual core Sandy Bridge (basically what the G530 is) could probably handle a better card than the GTX 460.
You shouldn't have a problem. No bottleneck.

You could always try to OC the CPU some if needed but that combo should handle most modern games without issue. Still more powerfull then your console
I have a relative with an old p4 AGP system that still plays a lot of games, granted the resolution is only 1280 x 1024 but still

yeah, people just look at the name "Celeron" and they all recall the s478 POS that carried that name.
Ever since the Conroe architecture they are quite capable CPUs. Loved the old Cely E3400, clocked them easily to 3.4Ghz (260x13) beating the pricier C2Ds.
My other rigs:
OCTANUX - Conroe865PE - QX6800 - 4GB OCZ Platinum EL - HIS HD4670 AGP - SB Audigy 2 ZS - BFG PPU
phenomenal - AM2NF3-VSTA - 965BE - 8GB OCZ Platinum LV - HIS HD3850 AGP - SB X-Fi - Asus PPU - *WIP*
Green Tea - 939A8X-M - FX60 - 4GB OCZ Platinum EL - 7950GT AGP
Re-build - CT-6VTA2 - PIII 600E - 384MB PC133 - Voodoo 5500 AGP - SB16 ISA
BLUELINE - H61M-GE - PDC G645 - 8GB DDR3-1333 - Powercolor HD7750 - 2xTV Wonder 650
