  1. What resolution you run will greatly determine whether your cpu or gpu bottlenecked in a game, but with a 5750 I would say any modern X3/X4 processor should be enough.
  2. My mother only supports LGA 775 if possible only core 2 duo's. I play with 1440x900 so i was wondering if an intel core 2 duo E8400 would do the trick.
  3. Well, any intel duo core would do it. Even if you did see a bottleneck, all you would need to do is OC tiny bit to up the clock speed. Even the 7500 is good. If you do see a bottle neck as I said just OC it bit :P No biggy, plus those Core 2 Duo Intel chips are pretty easy to OC.
  4. because i have dual core e2180 and i dont have enough money t change mobo and cpu so the best i can do is change the cpu thats why i wanted to know if an e8400 would be significally better than the e2180

    An Intel Core 2 Quad E8400 would be ample, they are a great processor.
    They have six times the L2 cache, twice as many cores, +66% more FSB, and +50% higher clock speed. (vs a Pentium E2180).

    In fact you could go for a lower processor, around 2.8GHz (2.66GHz to 2.93GHz)

    Remember to double check that your motherboard supports them first (65nm vs 45nm, new stepping & all that).

    Also check that your mainboard supports 1333 FSB and that your RAM : FSB ratio isn't going to get messed up or cause system instability and corrupt data over time, etc

    People here seem to have forgotten that you specifically mentioned a XFX manufactured Radeon 5750 video card, not a Radeon 4890 or Radeon 5770.
  6. What's that mean? How does XFX have to do with anything? Barely any of the Intel C2D's would bottleneck on a 5750....
  7. Which was exactly my point.

    Even an XFX manufactured Radeon 5750 is not going to be choked by such a system. (Remember: It might have a factory overclock, etc).
