Hi guys I was just wondering if my pc would have any huge bottlenecks.
First I do not oc any part of my pc.I run all my games on max in the ingame settings @ res 1920x1200.
I play games like sins of solar,gothic,medieval 2 total war, and play movies.
My system is an old hp a1720n, mobo is still the same.
processor: upgraded to an e6700 (for 60 bucks usd)
memory: 3gigs 667mhz
gpu: bfg 8800gts 512
os: vista 32 bit
Those are my specs and I can upgrade anything plz let me know.Now I will be Building a new one later.
So for this pc I would just like to see upgades like a new cpu or gpu.O and money really isnt a concern.
I think you're all set for now, especially if you're going to build a new PC later. You might have to take some settings down in the most demanding games at that resolutions (i.e. Crysis), but you'll be able to play most maxed out.
the e6700 is kinda weak a e8400 or 8500 will be better but it'll defenitly suffice. the 667MHz ram is pretty good but 800MHz will be better for gaming.
everything else is pretty good. It mostly depends on what games you play and at what res
Uh yeah i think that you can play most games at 1920x1200, but like one of the posters above said that a demanding game like crysis, you will need a much much more powerful videocard and I think you will need a more powerful cpu also. Personally, I would not get another type of videocard, I would just get another 8800gts and run them in SLI and then you will have very nice performance and even a demanding game like crysis I think would be tackled by those 2 cards. And plus 3 gigs is enough for vista but I would get faster ram, it will improve performance also.
Well, the CPU is mostly irrelevant at that kind of resolution, so I wouldn't worry about it for now. I'd say leave it alone for now, and if anything is performing under what you want, you could bump the video card up a bit (SLI is probably out of the question though with that mobo).
