I honestly would not be surprised if it bottlenecks an 8800gt. You need a new processor if you want to game hard. m 0 l piddles February 13, 2010 8:11:12 PM if the computer was bought from the store and isnt custom built, can the cpu still be upgraded? m 0 l Derbixrace February 13, 2010 8:12:04 PM as i said int your other thread. if you want a 5850 you probably need to buy a better cpu, i would look on a phenom II x4 940 if your motherboard supports it m 0 l piddles February 13, 2010 8:13:18 PM thnx guys m 0 l CrysisComa February 14, 2010 11:13:42 PM though the 940 is an Am3 or Am2+ socket and as you said you have a Am2 socket. i would probably upgrade with something like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or maybe if you can find something better. but i would probably go for a 5770 instead of the 5850. because im not sure if there really is anything that has an Am2 socket but wont bottleneck a 5850 m 0 l andy5174 a b à CPUs February 14, 2010 11:25:28 PM First, find out the model number of your MB using CPU-Z. Secondly, go to the MB's official website and check the CPU support list of it. Thirdly, get a new MB if it does not support both PII-945 and PII-955. p.s. Some Asus AM2 MB support 945 but not 955. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedWill this graphics card work on my motherboard ? and will my cpu bottleneck ?
