New GFX Card Wont perform its Fastest?

  xbeanx3000 17:55 28 Jul 2007


I'm thinking of getting a 8800GTS but was worried my processor might bottleneck things. Will a 3800+ slow down a 8800GTS?

I mean, If I plugged in a 8800GTS will some of its power never be seen because of the 3800+?

Thats right all the 8800 Cards need to keep up with todays technology so these cards will work better with Dual Core and DDR2 Ram. If your going to get a 8800 its going to bottleneck your components real bad.
