CPU, video card, power supply.
Depends on how much you want to spend and what will fit.
High graphics you want an i5 2400/2500 CPU, HD 6950/70 or GTX 560ti/570 video card, 550-650w power supply.

Please read through the thread thoroughly before responding.

460 was last gen. Get a 560, like Roark mentioned.

As for that PSU, I'm not all sure about it.
