Is the Intel Q8200@2.33 Ghz good enough for gaming considering that i am replacing my HD 4350 with the HD 6850 . Will my processor suffer any bottleneck ?
Thanks in advance .

You would benefit from a little overclocking, modern games will help use the 4 threads your chip is capable of. That said the stock frequency is a bit low, and games love high frequency. If you can raise the frequency a little you will be in better shape. What games are you thinking about running?

There are some guides in the overclocking section in this forum, look under core 2/core 2 quad. You don't need to clock it crazy high, I would say to around 2.8 or so. That should be very easy and perfectly safe after you get an idea of what you are doing. I had a q6600 (similar to your chip) that was clocked to over 3.0ghz(stock clock of 2.4)for almost 5 years until I upgraded.
