560 GTX Problem

I recently just purchased a 560 GTX (upgrading from a 9800GT) and I have noticed that I am getting the exact same performance as I did with the 9800GT. Same FPS and everything. My computer specs are:

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

AMD Phenom 9100e Quad-Core 1.80GHz

8GB DDR2 RAM

560 GTX

1440x900 Resolution

Is my CPU bottlenecking me? I mean, I expected a little of a bottleneck but not to the degree of it running the exact same as it was with my 9800GT.

  1. You most likely are, yes.

    An AMD Phenom at 1.8 GHz and a resolution of 1440x900 does not push the graphics cards enough to make a difference, apparently.
  2. Best answer
    Yup. Weak processor at a low resolution = don't bother to upgrade the GPU.
  3. Thanks for the replies. Guess that means it's time for me to do a complete build.
