hi all. my system currently run core2duo e8500 + 9800gt.
my question is,can my cpu handle gts450 or hd7750?
it that true my cpu can bottleneck gts450 & hd7750?

my rig is :
core2duo e8500
MB asus p5k pro
6gb ddr2 800 ram
700w tagan psu.

Best solution

No your CPU will not bottleneck the 450 or 7750 even at stock levels, in fact you should probably be fine with a GTX 650 Ti or Radeon 7770 (you'll definitely see better results if you have overclocked your CPU though)

yes..me also think like that..but some people in "game debate" said my cpu will bottleneck that gpu..
and 1 more question,can install the gts450 in secondary pcie slot on my asus p5k pro MB?so that will be 2 different graphic card on my system..will it work??

Frankly I'm running a GTX 260 with my E8500 which is a little more powerful than both those cards and I am still getting full GPU utilization during games so it's probably a random guy with no knowledge giving that comment

And no, unless you have two identical cards (either two 7750s or two 450 cards with an SLI/Crossfire bridge though the 7750 doesn't need a bridge) that configuration will not work

It seems that your board only supports crossfire, though you won't really see too big of a performance benefit (probably 60-70% more or so) if you used two 7750s with a stock E8500

Also, the secondary PCI-E slot operates at a slower speed so I wouldn't recommend using that slot

So basically, you can only use one of those cards at any given time

no. still in good condition. but i need to upgrade my rig a bit more..so that i choose gts450..i have 2 choice between gts450 @ hd7750..but i more prefer nvidia card..and i know hd7750 a slightly better than gts450..:(

You'd be better off saving up a little for a GTX 650 Ti then, it'd be the best card your system can handle before bottlenecking takes place

my budget is limited. computer part is very expensive in my country (malaysia). i just order a second hand gts450 around usd87.. the brand new gtx 780 is around usd700....:pt1cable:

I'm pretty sure the shipping fee will be around $30 or so though... :S

Just save up a little and go for a second hand 460 or whatnot, it's much more powerful than the 450
