Need advice HW update

Recommended Posts

Hello!

My current PC specs are: CPU: Intel [email protected], Motherboard: Intel DP35DP, GPU: EVGA GTX460 768MB, RAM: 2x2Gb DDR2 A-Data 800Mhz and PSU: Chieftec 550W

Because I got new graphic card (GTX460) I think my other components are bottlenecking it. Could u help me to choose new motherboad, cpu and cooler for cpu. Thanks in advance.

Give us a little more information mikits.

 

What resolution is your monitor? What makes you think you have a bottleneck? What game are you playing and what performance are you getting in terms of FPS?

 

The Q6600 is still a very capable processor and should be able to keep up with the GTX 460 I would have thought but somebody please correct me if I'm wrong.

If you buy a decent CPU cooler such as the Noctua NH-D14 or a Zalman 9900 you should be able to put a decent overclock on your CPU. If you can break 3.0ghz with a quad core, you are definitely not going to bottleneck that GPU (or any really for that matter).

That system is fine, I'd buy a Coolermaster Hyper 212+ and clock it up. Or for maximum performance you could get find the Corsair H50 places for $50.

Ok, but the thing is about my motherboard. It doesnt support overclocking. Could someone recommend me a good one? :) Thanks in advance.

Monitor is 1680x1050

I'd ask around on some forums for a p35 or p45 motherboard, aim for $80 or less

Just overclock it, no need for new motherboard...

 

Edit:

An ssd might help
