So upgrade is not worth spending the money. Your CPU is good enough as far as gaming is concerned and won't limit your GPU's performance. However, if you have some money to upgrade then let us now the whole system specs and e might be able to tell you what to upgrade | Report abuse Bluescreendeath CPUs Authority March 14, 2010 3:14:30 AM My E5300 OCed to 3.6GHz performs equal to a stock E8400 in PassMark benchmarks. Your OCed E5200 should already be better than the E8200 at stock. | Report abuse maco00 April 13, 2011 8:24:41 PM Best answer selected by maco00. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>E5200 vs E8200> Related ressources: ForumE5200 vs E2200 vs E7200 vs E8200 ForumWhich is better e7500 vs e8200 upgrade ForumE8200 overclock help ForumE8200 or E6850 ForumE8200 vs E8400 ForumE8200 vs .
