Hi

im looking to buy the GTX 470 gpu..

im currently sitting on a P5 motherboard with 4gb ram and a E7200 cpu with standard clock (2x2,53)

using the computer pretty much only for gaming.. SC2 atm.

will my CPU bottleneck with the GTX470 ?

if it does, would it help to OC the cpu?


also.. is there a benchmark test for witch GTX 470 card is the best?

I would have recommended EVGA if they werent using the same nvidia design for the cooler. i heard that the dual fan cooling from ASUS/Gigabyte runs it quite cooler and quieter. (i have an MSI GTX 470 and with reference nvidia cooler it runs hot and sounds like a JET)

and there are many more Gtx 470s with dual fan cooling you can choose from.
