  3. i dont think its a bottleneck. maybe try overclocking your E5200?
  4. If you overclock the CPU and get more fps then there is a bottleneck. In general they are a good match but at that resolution games are more CPU bound.
  5. @chino I tried OVERCLOCK it to 3ghz but i failed because im using STOCK COOLER.
  6. yes, the cpu is a huge bottleneck. 2.5ghz core 2 duo is not enough. But the question is, do you get good FPS? is it playable? if it is then dont worry about bottlenecks. sure you will get more fps with a faster cpu, but if its playable anyway, who cares.
  7. Yes, you have a huge bottleneck with the E5200 on stock settings.

    Overclock mo PC mo para gumanda ang takbo ng L4D2, anong motherboard mo?

    PM me.

    buy a CPU cooler like the one i have (Thermaltake Contac 29). its good for its price. then we'll help you overclock your CPU.
