  1. Nope, CPU, RAM and your drive are the issue. The 4670 is better spec than the rest of your system. Max out the CPU on your motherboard, get 4 gig of RAM, get a WD Black or a Samsung Spinpoint, and your system will match well to the 4670.
  2. ^+1 the 4670 is the best component you have, time for a system upgrade
  3. Its not too bad, yes a faster CPU will give you more FPS but then again you already have a faster CPU. You should overclock your CPU to get the max out of the system as already said.
    Not quite time for a new system yet.

    The CPU he has is not a faster one, it's no-where near up to the standard of the video card. I did not mean overclock the CPU, but upgrade to the max his motherboard will support.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116381 would work and is pretty cheap, maybe need a BIOS update for the motherboard, up to a http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115056. Would not go higher end than this for this system.
  5. Just overclock the cpu and you should expect any ware from 2.6ghz up to 3ghz with that sample but any thing above good luck. Your drive is the worst factor in your system. Green edition drives are slow and typically 5400 rpm while some are 7200 rpm. They have a high failure rate compared to blue and black editions. The board is ok and is better than some. The ram isn't much but for casual use it is fine but I suggest that you upgrade to 4gb. As for the card it is ok if you are not that much into gaming and not playing all the latest titles ect.

    Well I did mean to sugest Overclocking. OCing the CPU = a Faster CPU because running at stock its way slower than its caopable of going. latent built in extra speed = a faster CPU already there just waiting to be used.
    Only a total Idiot would sugest spending out on the best CPU that slot can suport to run a 4670 :pfff:

  7. thanks all for your opinions, im just asking because i dont have money to buy the cpu for the time being :P
    btw, the pentium e5700 price in malaysia only RM213 (1$ = RM3.04) means 5$ less :D
