how bad would a gtx570 be bottlenecked by a e8400 dual core cpu?
i will be playing bf3 and currently using a gtx460 1gb and im looking for better performance and being able to play at med/high settings.
First of all... if you have less than 6/4 Gb of RAM install more...
I think that you should upgrade your processor. The GTX570 will not make much difference with the video performance with that CPU. So...
TIME TO UPGRADE!
i have 8gb of ram and i bought the gtx 570 off newegg for $240 so i figured it was a good deal and will at least be good for my next complete build.
i will be happy if the new card just lets me play with higher graphical settings and the same fps i am currently getting(which i am pretty sure it will)
