i`ve got a AMD Athlon64 4000 @2.5ghz(single core skt939) and a nvidia 7600GT but i`m considering upgrading to 8800GTS 320mb, i mostly play racing sims GTL/GTR2 and rFactor on a LG L226WTQ 22" widescreen @1680x1050res.
Nope your 2.5 might be fast enough to run the card but wont keep up with everything else. I also hope your running 2Gig of ram. Duall cores are cheap right now I just got a 939_Opty_170 duall core from newegg for like 120:00. If you do the vista tester in nvidia Szone the cpu wont pass muster.I keep my 3700Sandy around in case of emergency's but I run duall core's. That Video card was designed to be ran with a duall core.

badarthur:- "won`t keep up with everthing else" such as? nope only got 1 gig of ram, not running VISTA no bloody intention to, winXP sp2 and whats an Opty 170
Its a Opteron 170, the best 939s made, duo core also. They are the highest binned, or top dawg processors from the batch. Server chips, theyll do most anything a regular chip can, and are great quality
