Pentium DC E6300 bottleneck HD5850?

Is it okay to add new card for my E6300 3.4ghz(OC) rig ?? Is there any bottleneck?? I play game with 1600x900 resolution and max settings(if possible) and do you think it would be quite enough to stress HD5850 to prevent bottleneck?

  1. Given the fact that the 5850 performs similary to 5850 id say that it wont bottleneck your system.
  2. Best answer
    The majority of the bottlenecks come from dual-card configurations, and ATI tends to do better than Nvidia when dealing with non-high end CPUs according to the Tomshardware charts.

    Overclock the E6300 a little more and you should be good to go. (If you wanted to OC all the way, the E5200/5300 can both do around 3.8GHz, so the E6300 can do 4Ghz without too much effort)

    Otherwise, the charts stated that the E6300 @ stock would bottleneck a 4890 or greater. So your current configuration would reduce most bottlenecks for your GPU.
    4890 < GTX285 < 5850
