thats kinda what i figured. im sure there may be faster cards then the x850 that i could get but im sure its gonna be bottlenecked by the cpu. I figure it should work fine since its about 2 levels higher then the x700 was. im still kinda stuck with older games anyway. i looked around to see what i could get new for the 30 bucks and it was all super budget level crap so i guess ill pick up that x850xt for now.
