Question about upgrading to a 8800GTS

Recommended Posts

I currently have a Optie 165, BFG 7800GT, 2gigs of G.Skill ram, and a DFI mb. I also have a Samsung 204bw widescreen monitor.

 

My question is: If I upgrade to a 8800GTS, will I be getting a large bottleneck on my cpu at a 2.7ghz clock speed? Also, would this card be the most logical graphics card update for this system? How much performance on the graphics card would I be losing compared to a Core 2 system?

 

I plan on buying a new graphics card in about a month or so. New games are eating me at this higher resolution.

 

Thanks in advance.

A dual core Opty at 2.7 Ghz? That won't be much of a bottleneck at all. It'd be comparable to a ~2.4 Ghz C2D if I'm not mistaken.

you should be fine! If you're more on a budget I would recommend an X1950Pro, but that will only be marginally faster than a 7800GT (it's a little better than a 7800GTX).
