if you don't plan on crossfire or SLI then 650 is fine but if you are consider something higher.

What do you guys think of upgrading to a GTX 465. Seems like there are quite a bit better than the 460 and not much more $.
Mostly going to be playing Flight Sim X, will my setup be good enough?
The 465 will rock FSX no problem with that i7.

With ease. MW2 is revamped from 4 which is revamped from 2. I would sure hope an i7 and 465 can handle MW2 :laugh:
