Hello, I have a e5300 dual core processor @ 2.88GHz. Im thinking of buying ati 5670 gpu. Will my processor bottleneck d gpu. I usually play Call of Duty 4. I get 125 Locked fps wid my current 9400gt at farily gud grafix and 1024X768 resolution. will i get more fps if i get 5670 or not? or do i have to change my cpu also?

Your cpu will not bottleneck a 5670 so you would get more fps.

If you get 125 locked FPS, you will not see any improvement with a new card. Although, you could raise the graphical settings if they aren't already maxed. What is the refresh rate of your monitor? 75hz? If so, you can't see more than 75 FPS.

If you use the "com_maxfps 250" command,you can get more FPS with a 5670(not 250FPS fix though but still)

ye i know d max fps command...bt my present gpu wont giv me locked 250 fps even if my grafix are minimum...so i set my fps @ 125 wid textures max and 75Hz refresh rate...at 1025X768 resolution wid oder graphic details off such as anti-aliasing etc...
if i get 5670...can i use better graphic details wid fps still at 125 locked??


And yeah...will a core 2 duo processor be enough for me to get 250 fps wid max graphics...or do i need quad core???

COD4 mostly benefits from a fast GPU rather than CPU,so getting 5670 will give you a huge boost in performance.(It may not be 250 fixed with max settings but it'll be close to it)

While the graphics card can say it's producing more than 75 FPS, the reality is, his monitor won't display more than 75 FPS, so going any higher does not produce any visual improvements at all. In fact, it may produce tearing, or increase tearing.

I know it won't produce more than 75FPS because of the limit but setting the FPS to 250 helps a lot in higher jumps(in MP mode) but yes it definitely increases tearing

I have the 5670, and iv tested it with both a dual core and my current AMD 6 core clocked at 3.3 and i get a constant 250 on mid/high settings, but when i was on the dual core, i barely got my 200 so i suggest you get your self a new processor i suggest that you go with the AMD 1090t
