I was just wondering if my CPU was the bottleneck for games? For an example, i'll be playing world of warcraft, and i check the CCC for the graphics card and the activity only reaches 62% max. Is my CPU bottlenecking the graphics card?
As you can see, these are old **** games that no one plays anymore. On newer games, I bet there's an even larger discrepancy in FPS between an outdated Athlon X2 based chip and a new Core2 chip. Not to mention the e8000-series Core2's will overclock from 3.6ghz-4.1ghz.
