it should help a little I mean technically yes anything would help. But you should benchmark it, if its just a 1-4 frame increase it aint worth stressing your CPU for. IF it gains you like a 5+ frame increase depending on the game (crysis) it will benefit you!
hmmm thats a real tough 1. I mean with the 9800 GTX you'll get a slight increase in performance over the 8800 GTS G92, While with the 8800 GTS and a AThlon CPU would do you better. In the Long run I think it would be better to have the 9800 GTX because of Tri SLI.
I mean the CPU you can replace any time, while the video card is a bit more slow coming you know???
So if I were you I'd got witht he Vid and then wait and get the CPU. Although I'd suggest a phenom! Remember the ones with the 50 in their name, those are the Revisions!
But isnt todays games heavily dependent on gpu power rather then cpu? thats what i have been hearing.
okay long story my computer was acting up so i opened it after that my monitor did not get any pic so i thought my gfx card went bad so i returned it and got an 9800gtx for the same price, and the problem continued so i figured it was the cpu so i sent it to amd they said it was a physical damage (pin broke by accident) so they said not there problem the tech working with me talked to his manager and they said they will give me an amd x2 5200 for a replacement so i agreed the end. so now im stuck with a amd x2 5200 and a 9800gtx lol sorry for mistakes wrote this really quick.
yeah they are GPU related. I mean don't get me wrong, but the physics are done by the CPu and the AI as well, So it really a mix. To get the best performance you need a shine from both. THe 5200 will hold you back, but not to an extreme, atleast not from todays games. I think as long as you have decent ram and you get the 9800 GTX your good to go.
And like I said TRI-sli available for the 9800 GTX while it isn't for the 8800 GTS
