  1. Ah I see ,oh well,I have a hd5870 saphire oc card ,I thought possibly cpu was bottle necking card ,my cpu is oc to just under 3.3.Possibly I will have a go at building a new pc anyways,Thanks!
  2. why would a faster cpu not make any differnece for gaming?Would i need a better motherboard and possibly two hd5870's.would ddr3 ram make any difference for gaming purposes?Sorry for the silly questions,I am a noob!
  3. Would that little increase make much difference,Just some games lag a little when pushed to max,Will the bulldozer be expensive and worth the wait?Thankyou very much for your help!
