    THe 4650 will not be good enough for your resolution. Better hold off on the quad core and pour more money on the graphics card.
    What is your current CPU and what core2quad you are eyeing now? How much?
  3. You would defiantly see a better increase in games either upgrading your GPU first (to a better one) , or at least getting a three core option and a better GPU. THat graphics card will defiantly struggle at that resolution.

    If you've got £150 pounds you have a big budget to buy something much more powerful than a mere 4650. The ATI 5750 is only £104 and much faster.
