PLEASE HELP: Upgrading my 9800 GX2

Hi guys, I just bought a Gigabyte GTX 560 Ti SOC 950mhz video card to upgrade from my 9800 GX2 and was wondering whether i would actually see a difference playing games? I also wanted to know whether or not my current system would bottleneck the new card. Looking to upgrade my motherboard/processor soon. Some of my specs are: AMD Athlon 64 x2 4800+ 2.4ghz, ASUS A8N32 SLI deluxe motherboard, 4gb DDR RAM, running on Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit on a 19" LG Flatron W2061TQ at 1600 X 900. Any advice or input would be greatly appreciated!

  1. Hi

    have a read of this article

    it will show how in most cases the gpu is the bottleneck as opposed to the cpu.
    its an iteresting read and may answer your question's

    p.s i have an older cpu and can still play any game in top specs : )
  2. Well I had a q9450 running at 3.5 GHz replaced my 8800 GTX, 2 in SLI, with 2 GTX 580's in Sli, ran 3D mark vantage and went from 23,000 to 28,000. Needless to say I was disappointed. The only thing I could think of is that the CPU was the Bottle neck, so I upgrade My motherboard to the 1366 platform running a i7 950 at 4GHz and am now getting 44,000 marks. So what do the answer to your question is?
