will my cpu will botleneck my card

i wiil be playing at 1080p

More about : 560 bottleneck

Pretty much yes. Try overclocking to about 3.2Ghz

at stock clock your cpu will definitely bottleneck your gpu.

my motherboard lacks the option to overclock .tell the highest card that it can run without bottlenecking

then you're definitely not going to take full advantage of GTX560 performance. either look for something else or build an entirely new platform. other option is to replace your mobo but i think is not wise to invest more money on your two generation behind platform.

i have heard that at high res games are gpu dependent

The GTX 550 Ti would be a good choice!

No it will not bottleneck your GTX560, no single card can bottleneck a quad core especially if your running a screen resolution of 1080p and higher.

At 1080p most of the load is over on your GPU (this case your GTX560) and your cpu will be doing very little work. i say upgrade

true but not entirely. given you have good cpu and gpu the game will rely more on gpu on high resolution especially if the game is very gpu intensive. but at lower resolution a very gpu intensive game still need faster gpu to get more frame rates. for example quad cpu running at 2.0Ghz will still bottleneck GTX580 even at 2560x1600. so the point is you still need to pair good cpu with GTX580 if you really want to tap GTX580 true potential. to be exact your cpu is not entirely bad if it can be overclock. the problem is your mobo

i'm not saying your mobo is broken or something like that. only stating that the lack of overclocking feature becomes a problem if you want more performance from your cpu

overclocking wont make a worlds difference with your cpu.

im running with a 5770 at 1080p with a athlon x4 620 which scores lower than your q8200, i overclocked from its stock 2.6Ghz to 3.25Ghz and the difference in fps for my games (bfbc2, ect) wasnt much at all, i gained on my max fps alot but my min fps only went up by 2-3.

One thing, your upgrading from a 9400gt which makes me think your PSU isnt very good and most probably wont handle a gtx560.

i will definitely buy a new psu .can you tell that with this config i can run most of games above 60 fps

really all depends on the game as some are more demanding than others, the gtx560 is a mid-range card and, as expected gives a decent performance. Here is some reviews on it i suggest you go through them and see what type of games you play, and from there decide if the fps it gives for your type of game is good enough

If you are upgrading the mobo you might as well upgrade the processor, rather than just getting another 775 motherboard!

with plans like that it is better to save your money to build entirely new platform. just buy GTX560 now and save the rest of the money for new platform. when the time comes just swap your GTX560 into your new rig.

I can relate, you want to upgrade NOW (hey, money always "makes' me spend it...:)  )....


These choices will work for you Now and can be used when your ready to upgrade more of your system....

560 Ti's are around $250...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


A good 650watt supply will support any SINGLE card.. About $80 .(Corsair, Antec TP, Seasonic...)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


We ONLY spent $330. The setup above plans for Only one (1) GPU. Since we have just a bit more money, let's plan for a Dual GPU system on your build. Hey, the performance of two (2) 560 Ti's in SLI is stunning, way beyond even a GTX 580 Single card...


A good 850watt supply will support just about any DUAL card.. About $150 .(Corsair, Antec TP, Seasonic...)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

(this is one bad ass PS, it pumps out 70A on the 12volt rail, which is more like an 900 or 950watt power supply....)


This works out to, $400 bucks, perfect !!!! Now your ready for anything in the future......


So what if you don't get every last FPS out of your new 560 Ti for now, it going to CRUSH that old 9400 GT in your system...

can you tall how much 560 would be faster than 9400gt............

for sure the margin is very big. to be exact 9400GT was never being a gaming card in the first place.

no comparison in games though
