Hello! I've recently been looking into upgrading my computer to play most current games Medium-High settings at 1600x900 resolution at about 30+FPS. Some games like BF3 and Crysis 2 I would settle at minimum settings. Although I don't have my specs handy, I do know that I will get a GTX 550 ti 1GB. My processor, however, is a Pentium Dual Core @ 3.2GHz (normal clocked). I have read that most games require at least a core duo. If I need to upgrade my CPU, then I won't bother. Could I have some advice please?

My advice is don't bother with that CPU, it won't play games decenetly, and you will be out the money you spent on it. Wait until you can get a more substantial upgrade.

So I suppose a Pentium E5800 @3.2GHz =/= Core 2 Duo @#GHz?
