There might be some bottleneck which can be reduced by overclocking the CPU. Never the less it is compatible with the HD4850.

Your motherboard allows for overclocking and you should do so. You should be able to easily get that processor up to 3ghz and beyond which will make it fine to pair with an HD4850. At stock it will certainly limit the card in the more CPU intensive games.

I think so, but i dont really understand about overclocking... so its hopeless for me:cry: 

if i buy hd 4850 with my current cpu surely it will be bottleneck, right?

so with my budget $130 which one better, buy hd 4850 or upgrade my processor to core2quad? :??:

It's really not a particularly hard thing to do. Essentially you are simply raising the front side bus in the bios, perhaps the voltage of the processor a bit. The are plenty of guides online. Here is a good one for beginners;

It depends on the game, for example my E4500 would bottleneck my 4670 in C&C 3 when I go up against several Brutal AI.
Overall I don't think it's bottleneck it too much if you turn the settings up to high/very high and maybe AA.
