Radeon 4670 or 4850?? CPU bottleneck... Tags: Graphics Cards Bottleneck Processors Radeon Graphics Last response: November 1, 2009 11:20 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Anonymous a b U Graphics card November 1, 2009 7:57:36 PM So Im in the market for a new GPU i was thinking a radeon 4670 or maybe a 4850 but I'm wondering about my processor. I have an AMD Athlon 64 x2 dual core 4000+ 2.1 ghz (also running 3 gigs of ram) Is this thing garbage?? is there any point spending the cash on a 4850 or will my processor limit the card? Am I better off just getting the 4670?? More about : radeon 4670 4850 cpu bottleneck hunter315 a c 194 U Graphics card November 1, 2009 8:03:08 PM What resolution will you be playing at?
