Hi, I got an older setup that I would like to stuff a new video card in till the CPU/Mobo becomes the more serious bottleneck or till I get diminishing returns so to speak.
Running a Core 2 quad Q8300 oc'd to 2.8 ghz to achieve 1600mhz on DDR3 ram on a Intel DX48BT2 mobo. Current vid card is a HD4650.
Yea, I know the processor is old, but I can't upgrade that end for a while, but I can upgrade the video card.
So, what I can I stuff on this board till the cpu is just completely overwhelmed lol. I suppose I could OC the cpu a little more too, but the current video card is just blah.
I would suggest anything above a GTX 660 will be bottlenecked by your CPU. Increasing your OC to 3ghz + might get you a few more FPS, but beyond that level of card, you really are wasting money.
