Will an ION board bottleneck an add-on card like a 9800GT?

I'm contemplating on a new rig but I'm a little strapped for cash and I have a 9800GT circa 2008 that will be RMAd soon.
I'm wondering if an ION board would bottleneck my 9800GT as I'm just going for moderate gaming here.

  1. Whats ion board?
  2. Yup, an Atom would definitely bottleneck.
    At least get a Athlon X2.
  3. Sub 3ghz dual core will bottle neck a single 9800gt but you should take a look at the second hand market instead of a new retail build. The savings is substantial.
  4. cool. thanks
