  1. You should be fine for most apps/games. Of course, your system is rather dated. Might be time to start thinking about updating your rig.
  2. At 3.6 you'll be fine,no need to worry.

    No no no your are fine with what you have and at 3.6ghz you got a little wiggle room even for a higher end card but sli and crossfire may as well be out of the option. I got a e7200 that I nuked to 3.53ghz and it holds a gtx 460 up just fine.
  4. Thanks for the answer guys, I was also planning on updating my rig next year. So im starting on my graphics card first then the mobo+ram+cpu. Thanks!
