Solved Intel Q6600 @ 3Ghz throttle ati 5850? Tags: Graphics Cards Intel ATI Graphics Last response: October 1, 2009 5:52 PM in Graphics & Displays Share VoidPhantom October 1, 2009 5:37:24 PM I bought everything in my computer 2 years ago, and at the time the 8800gt was the best bang for the buck for 22" at 1680x1050. Recently I have upgraded my monitor to a 23" at 1920x1080 and the 8800gt doesn't want to keep up with the resolution. Currently thinking about upgrading to ATI's HD5850 but I need some inputs. Will my Q6600 @ 3 throttle the graphics card?
