  1. list up your specs?
    also putting an expensive GFX card in a cheaper mobo is not an good idea.

    Also i don't have enough money bcz i planned that if i buy a new mobo, ill buy with a lg 1155 socket and then i 'll have to buy a new processor too but now i don't have enough money, so can this mobo really handle the hd 6950 :( I will upgrade the mobo and processor next year.

    sorry, mate firstly your cpu is way too slower to handle hd6950 you need atleast quad-core but as you said not enough money then go with cheaper gpu.

    I'll upgrade my cpu till sept or dec but until then cant my motherboard and cpu handle games lik ac 2, brtherhood, BFBC2
    I have the money to buy a hd 6950 but not the cpu and motherboard

    All right thanx for ur help xtreme5 :wahoo: :wahoo: :wahoo: :wahoo:
  10. welcome!
  11. IM gonna say this, I had a 6950 with a q6600 quadcore and that was holding back my 6950, so its gonna be really held back with that. If your gonna do the big upgrade in the fall I would say save your money till the fall and do a better upgrade than. Otherwise use a 4850 on that rig your planning for the time being to save some extra money for the big upgrade which is when you should get the big GPU
