question i have an AMD Phenom X4 9100e will i be able to play new games with it i know it's not the best but its not slow, also what video card will be good, a video card that wont be bottlenecked by the cpu
dude uve got a quad core, stop throwing around the word bottleneck, the only way that cpu will bottleneck is if you plan to play the latest games in 2560x1600 at highest settings. if u get a new psu like 550w, ull be able to power pretty much any single chip, probably not the gtx 285and the 9800gt isnt the most powerfull of graphics processors so im thinking aa and af wont really be on the agenda.
Its a quad core, but its one of the slowest first gen AMD Phenom Quad cores. Trust me, it can bottle neck. (no, it won't bottle neck a 9800GT, nor a 4850.) The 4670 doesn't need a PCIe plug, its the best you can get for small PSUs.
