Ok after x-mas i plan to upgrade a lil bit not alot.

1st is the vid card cause mine is faulty
2nd is cpu

I plan to oc it and i alrdy have a good cooler.

my main concern is will that cpu bottleneck the video card. I dont think it will but what do u guys think? i cant go quad core cause i dont wanna buy a new mobo, i dont have enough money for that.

i will also have 4 gigs of ram by then. and a corsair 750watt psu.

so any info would be nice
thx in advance

FPS games at 16x10. I wouldn't bother with the 4870, get the 4850 instead. The CPU you picked out is good, but with the money saved you should be able to get a quad. You should be able to get the 9950 for the same price, and at 16x10, you won't notice the difference.

I would make sure your motherboard can use the CPU, and if the video card is still under warranty get it fixed and keep it as a spare or sell it.
Good choice on the video card, VisionTek is the only ATI card I would buy.
