Is My Processor Going To Bottleneck An 8800GT?

Turn all that crap OFF and your machine will thank you. What has been your experience when buying video cards? My e6400 (stock: 2.13GHz) hums along just fine on stock cooling at 3GHz, under full load only hits 55C max. The e2140 I have requires a higher FSB speed than the e2160 or e2180 because of its lower multiplier, but don't neglect good cooling if you want reliable and safe overclocking. weblink

Never choose EGG-Saver shipping it will take forever. A higher number there means that the video card is based on a more recent generation, which always brings in improvements over the previous generation. 4850: The second number refers to See our privacy policy. 7 Reasons to Get Our Posts By Email Latest articles 11 Best High-End Gaming Laptops : February 2017 The Best Internal 2.5″ and 3.5″ Hard Drives - Newegg is well known and have very good quick shipping and customer service is supposedly good, I only delt with them once and they were very polite and my problem was Get More Information

My new board (which is still a socket 775) supports crossfire. I can easily bet Penryn will hit 4ghz if Intel wants to on 45nm (even today, let alone probably 2 more spins/steppings before say nehalem). As long as I don't get too many additional reports regarding my car "starting to run out of power at 6500 rpm" I'll live. hazza8705-03-2008, 08:04 PMI have a E6420 currently running at 3.2GHZ on stock intel HSF and it runs perfectly and not particularly hot.

Um...why? The core chips scale well with clock rate increases, the AMD chips not quite so well. I'm planning to play Battlefield 3 on my 720p TV, which means a pretty low resolution of 1280x768 so hopefully it will run well even if my CPU could've been better. I mean i just brought a $200 video card so i need some cpu power.

AMD over Intel then is sorta like Intel over AMD now, one is better, but it's not like one just can't run stuff. The NB doesn't need extra cooling, thats well within design specs. AMD could magically get their process down (I love them, but they've failed for about a year on this thing) and put out a 3.2ghz phenom. A friend of mine can overclock his E6400 to 2.9GHz stock everything, and I'm sure E6420 would be just as good.

Therefore I might as well just get it.

In the vast majority of cases, a higher number means higher performance, but both ATI and Nvidia tricked people in the past with crippled GS/SE models, so keep an eye open What's wrong with that? check over here If it's LG775, upgrade it!redneckdouglasI am willing to bet it is socket 775, but there is more to upgrading than just socket type, you need to check out chipset.

Im not looking to go the intel route since i just brought this cpu/mobo 1 week ago lol. this content BF3 is going to be more demanding but if you are running 1280x768 I would think it would definitely give you at least somewhere between around the 50-60 FPS with high
