Will my CPU bottleneck HD 5770?

I'm planning the get the Asus CuCore HD 5770, but I'm slightly concerned about my CPU. Here are my specs right now.

CPU: AMD Athlon x2 5400+ Brisbane (2.8ghz)
RAM : OCZ 2G 800 mhz
GPU: Geforce 7900 GS (haha due for upgrade).


Will it adversely affect the potential of the 5770? Can i still play stuff Like Assasin's Creed 2 or Starcraft 2 on highish settings?

Thanks :p

    obviously with a faster CPU, the 5770 will perform better but it will handle the games mentioned above with no issue

    make sure you can power it though
  2. I'd expect so, because 2.8ghz is quite fine. See if you can get it to hit about 3.2ghz though.
