Hi

My CPU is Pentium E6300@2.8GHz stock(not C2D E6300). Will a GTX295 be bottle necked by it? If so, what's the best graphic card my CPU can take?

How do you determine if a GFX is bottle necked by a CPU or not?

Thanks

if you're running crysis at very high details, and very high resolution, then your cpu won't bottleneck at all. It depends on the game/rez/details. depending on those things, any cpu will bottleneck a gpu OR any gpu will bottleneck a cpu.

Do you really mean "high"?

....1440x900 is the resolution of my monitor

What is the best graphic card that won't be bottle necked by E6300@2.8GHz at 1440x900 res?

Something like a GTS250 or HD4850 will be good for you.

Well if you want you can get a GTX260 or HD4870 but that is the absolute max that you can get with a 1440x900 and Pentium E6300@2.8GHz (also try to OC this cpu)

That card is a HUGE waste of money with that processor and monitor. A card that costs 1/5th of that should do very well at your resolution. If you have that kind of money to spend I'd recommend this stuff;

Your motherboard should be able to use that chip(you may need to update your bios.)
Or just buy an HD4850 for now and save up to build an i7 system.
