I have
Core2Duo e7400@2.8Ghz
4GB DDR2
G41 Mobo with Pcie X16 Slot
If i upgrade to 5770 or GTX260 will there be a bottleneck Due to Processor or lack of pcie2.0 slot

Dont say that just for the sake of it.
i dont have the budget for a new cpu. I may go for a Core i5 around Christmas.
Till then how much would a 5770 or GTX260 help my System. i currently have 9800GT 512MB.

Your Processor will handle those cards with ease...

There will be no bottleneck due to x16 slot.

BTW what resolution do you game at?
And Which PSU do you have?

its highly likely that your CPU will bottleneck either a 5770 or GTX260, But you'd be getting playable framerates so it wont matter to much.
Just go for it : )

Thanks to all for Positive Response. I play at 1600X900 and i will also get a Cooler master 500W PSU with the card.
