Hello,Im just new here so sorry if i did anything wrong. Im building a new PC and it currently has the AMD Athlon II X2 255, i was thinking of getting a card like the 560 or 550ti. possibly a 6000 series ATI card. if i do get one of these cars will the processor bottleneck the gpu when i play games like bad company 2 and possibly bf3. also battlefield play4free. if so should i get a quad core or just downgrade gpu? i want to play above 30fps.
extra info: AMD Athlon II X2 255 runs at 3.1Ghz Dual core.
RAM: 2gb (RAM is not an issue for me i am willing to buy more).
Yes it will. Honestly you will want a quad core CPU. My wife as a Athlon II X2 255 but for her, its fine as she doesn't do heavy gaming. But for your GPU and the games you want, a quad would be the better route to go.
Also, put in for 4GB of RAM and make sure you have 7 64bit. 4GB of RAM will make 7 very happy.
