  1. No, your cpu won't bottlenecking 9500GT, but that card is not a gaming card, it's a weak one...
    Go at least 9600GT or GT240 minimum.
  2. ok thx i'll get GT240

    uhm what's better?

    SPARKLE GT240 DDR3 or Inno3d GT240 DDR3 or Inno3d GT240 DDR5 ?
  3. Before that, tell us your FULL specs:
    CPU-MOBO-RAM-PSU-Monitor-Budget?

    We'll suggest you which card is the best for your need...

    Of those three the DDR5 version is the one to go for.
  5. Those components will go good together, but for great gaming, you really need at least a 9600 for decent graphics performance. I'd try a 5670 if you have a few more bucks.

    CPU-intel core 2 quad q8300 2.5ghz
    MOBO- Asus PK5PL
    RAM-Kingston 2gb
    PSU-ORION 600w PSU

    my budget 4 GPU is around $80-90 only

    ^^
  7. If you really on tight budget then get HD5670 or GT240, no less than that, it's around $80-$90, so save a little bit and get HD5670 or GT240. :)
  8. ok thanks wa1
    i'll get hd5670

    another thing does my MOBO asus PK5PL compatible w/ hd5670 GPU ? and does the 600w ORION psu enough to handle?

    thanks guys.
