    What part of your system are you talking about? Do you even understand the concept of the over used (and misleading term) of "bottlenecking"?

    The CPU i mean.Is it going to do the job.

    over clock your CPU and you don't need 6GB of RAM. 4GB is more then enough

    no it won't do the job.
    it won't totally (bottleneck) your machine in compared with video but,
    it is a hindrance..
    what speed RAM are you using.?
    I'd say new motherboard and cpu if it was me if you want to be a little more current.
    But at least a cpu upgrade along with at least 4GB RAM 800mhz or better.
    ct1615 - overclocking is an option but then you'll need to upgrade cpu cooler..

    I have a pair of 8800GT's on an E8400 which at 3ghz is only 600hz faster and a single GTX460 is about comparable to (slightly slower in fact) SLi'd 8800GT's.

    OC to 3.0ghz on the stock cooler, although an aftermarket cooler is always a good idea

    for very optimum gaming, a q6600@ 2.4Ghz..?
    never unless you overclock it.
    I didn't say it can't, "it won't totally (bottleneck) you machine",
    but it's weak at stock speeds.

    Do you have any evidence to prove that or are you just guessing?

    then you should have no issue to get your CPU to 3+ghz

    real-world experience with almost the same set-up.
    it ran yes, hell it's a quad and that's cool, but the 2.4Ghz @ stock was killing me.
    just like my H22 Accord, I have the need for speed...!

    ...and as always, just passing my opinions.
    and when I make certain comments, not questions.. it's because I've seen it or been there.
    till next time,
    cheers.

    I'm sorry but being the clean living individual that I am I have no idea what rhymes with "duck you". [:mousemonkey] :lol:

    i dont think anecdotal evidence is completely useless, why then do some hardware act worse than another person's exact same hardware?

    and, being the clean living individual you are, you must be thinking that malmental was giving his 2c worth of feedback to help the OP.

    just my 2c

    edit: meant malmental
  14. Don't get all wee-weed up over what ever the [expletive] you were trying to say in the useless post you made.
  15. that "useless" post i just made was based on the fact that like the original poster, and other commenters on this thread, i had almost the same exact rig at one point in time and it NEVER hurts to hear from so called "anecdotal evidence".

    and it was with so called "anecdotal evidence" that i got from this forum that i was able to get advice and upgrade to the rig i have now.
  16. where is this heading to?????

    You don't appear to be aware of the context of jofamang's quote, you'd be better off looking it up first before passing a comment on something you don't seem to know stuff all about.
  18. edit: i meant malmental, not jofamang.
