GTX 560 Ti Performance question.

I've recently purchased a GTX 560 Ti and I read a few forum topics off of google which said that the q6600 2.4ghz paired with this video card will hinder it's true performance.

Now unfortunately, I'm using a q6600 2.4ghz and my PC is made by HP so I highly doubt I will be able to overclock.

Here is my system: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01070940&cc=ca&lc=en&dlc=en&product=3442913&tmp_track_link=ot_search

-I upgraded the PSU to modxstream pro 500 watt
-ram to 4gb instead of 2
-I'm thinking of getting a new fan (the arctic rev 2)

I understand that I won't see the 560 ti's full capability, but will I be losing A LOT of performance or just minor?

Thanks!

  1. You will just make your cpu your bottleneck. Performance will be based on how cpu intensive the game is as well as how many cores the game can utilize.
