AND WHY THE F*U*K do you ALWAYS quote my posts and reply something stupid???
um his quote wasn't something stupid ddr3 isnt that much better than ddr2 AND as for "always"? He only did it once. Besides it very much matters what rez hes playing at because the higher the rez than less that the cpu is used.
God wouldn't know the difference if he were using DDR2 or DDR3. Until we get 4mz right out of the box all processors are going to bottleneck the 5850. If that's what you want buy it. Your hardware is fast enough to run. The power supply sound like a real POS but It might be ok.
Nope, well It would work better with a Quad Core and DDR 3 ram of course but Nah you wont get a major bottleneck. I think you should go for that GPU
actually a high end dual core and DDR2-800 low latency ram is plenty, the difference between DDR2-800 and DDR3-1600 (with equivalent latencies) is negligible, 2-3fps at best which is usually with in the margin of error for most benchmarks
but then again you are person who said the 4850 was crap and the GTS250 was way better
GTS 250 by far! Both 9800GT and HD 4850 are pretty bad cards. The GTS 250 performs as good as a HD 4850 if not better and it costs just slightly more than the 9800GT which costs quite a bit lesser than HD 4850
