How bottlenecked would a 4.0ghz pentium 4 htt be with Crysis on high settings?

What if one were using a hd5850 or gtx470 with 4gigs of ram and a good cooler?

  1. Very.

    there would be no point at all in using such a powerful GPU with such an old CPU. check out the article about building a balanced gaming PC...
  2. I only tried it once on a P4 and same on a Athlon XP 2500 (barton). Your cpu is far to weak for high end gaming so I suggest you upgrade before buying any new cards. You can go ahead and get new ram but a new cpu hands down. So what is your current board?
  3. Imagine a bottle the size of the Earth, and the neck of the bottle is approximately the size of a ticonderoga pencil. That's about how bottlenecked it would be.
    With the GPUs you're talking about, get yourself a new core i7 and let them fly.

    Haha I never once stated that this Pentium 4 is my CURRENT CPU.... I used to have it before that was about 6 years ago and is now rotting in my cousins house for all I know. It was a FIGURATIVE question. However to answer your question, my current motherboard is a vanilla Intel DG35EC...

    I already bought the core i7 930 just a month and a half ago but I still dont have my motherboard yet due to unavailability. Im planning on changing my current core 2 duo e7500 setup however asap.
