  3. thanks guys..
  4. yeah..It's not going to play gta4-5,ARMA,or Far Cry 3,or Max Payne very well
    really quads with some L3 cache are what's best..
    775 Yorkfields are OK...not the bestest though.
    I would recommend overclocking as much as you can and still be stable :)
    4.4 maybe?
    Short answer:Yes

    I was running my e8400 @3ghz with SLi'd 560Ti's and was getting decent enough frame rates.

    Yeah..e8400 still a strong dual core processor..even for today

    in non optimized multi thread programs or games before 2012, it still show the muscle..and almost as fast i3 series..
