  1. Your cpu will cause a bottleneck in most games, but I don't think your mobo supports any cpus worth upgrading to, so you'll have to upgrade your platform (mobo, cpu, ram) to alleviate that bottleneck. An HD 4670 or HD 5570 on the ATI side or a 9600 GT or a GT 240 on the NVidia side is the max I'd go with for that cpu (any higher and you'd be wasting your money).
  2. Thank you. Ill take that advice. I wasn't planning on going any higher. But I am trying to run starcraft 2 with no lag so I figuered I could go to about a years old tech before needing a new computer. I think ill probably go for the 9600 unless the 240 is better. Thanks!!
  3. Check out this article for a good look at the GT 240 vs. the 9600 GT vs. HD 4670 (consider the HD 5570 as a little better than the HD 4670):

    Then read and obey the rules and don't insult me, or you won't be posting here at all.

    Posting in caps is also a violation by the way.
