So I posted a thread here asking for advice on which GPU to upgrade my system to. I mentioned that EVGA would replace my 8800gt later on in the thread. That got me thinking... Since I no longer HAVE to replace my GPU, should I upgrade my CPU instead? Here's my current specs:
TF2 is CPU dependent but it likes a fast dual core CPU. So at stock the E8200 would more then likely outperform the q6600 but you can always OC the Q6600 to reach similar levels. You would then also get the advantage in games that utilize multi-cores.
