:hello:  So i have pentium d 805 2.66 ghz cpu and sparkle geforce gt 220 1gb ddr3 , 2gb ddr3 1333mhz ram (one pair) windows xp 32 bit, and i have a feeling that i got a bottleneck or something, for exaple gta 4 on lowest settings runs from about 10 to 45 fps ussually 15-30 ,but when i turn around it drops down instantly,btw changing resolution from 1280x800 to 800x640 almost doesnt make any change, crysis runs really not what i was expected for, about 9-30 fps ,and it runned before when i got old asus board with 2gb ram 512 533mhx x2 and one pair of 1gb 667 mhz , so i wondering what i can do to make my old rig more stable , tryed overclock gpu and cpu ,gpu easy goes from 500mhz core,1157 mhz shader,533mhz memory to -- 674mhz,1559mhz,589mhz or even more ,but cant see much diffrence in fps, and cpu from 2.66 to 2.8 or 2.99ghz ,wasnt able to notice better performance in gaming .... so upgrading cpu to e2140 would fix bottleneck ? or installing win 7 64 bit operating system ? or put onother 2gb ram stick ? :??: 

my point is to determine if my rig is bottlenecking,and if can i reduce bottleneck with easy and cheap solutions cuz i cant afford high end cpu or vga ...

can someone suggest me if upgrading to intel E6300 core 2 duo woul solve some bottleneck ? and hows my gt 220 would react to new cpu ??? :bounce:  ,wondering buy E6300 for cheap price or not .....

The gt 220 is a very low end card...i don't think it would be bottlenecked, or the bottlenecking might be minor.

That being said, a E6300 will definitely be a significant upgrade for you IF you get it at a very cheap price. Please check if your mobo supports the e6300 first though.

now i got two options E6300 core 2 duo 2mb cache or Intel Xeon Dual-Core 3065 2.33GHz 4MB Cache(both lga 775 as my mobo is) i can get both for same price .... as i see xeon has 1333mhz bus speed and my mobo supports 1333mh and my ram is 1333mhz and xeon is newer and i guess it would be ultimate choise :wahoo:  i know my gt 220 sucks,i just wanna make sure gu wont bottleneck or stutters i need stable fps at lower graphics or resolution....

I'm 99% sure you won't be able to run the Xeon chip on your current desktop board. Just confirm with your motherboard's latest manual to reconfirm :) 

The E6300 may run, again depending upon whether your mobo supports it or not, though the E6300 has a much much higher probability of working in your current motherboard. :)

well ... e6300 must run ,the seller of my mobo said it's good mobo cuz it runs pretty much all of the lga 775 cpu's so i got this mobo checked cpu support to be sure,so i am buying e6300 i hope to see some really noticeble diffrence in FPS .... :)

Yup just checked with the link you provided. Even 45nm wolfdales are supported :) 

BTW are you getting the C2D E6300, clocked @ 1.86Ghz OR the Pentium E6300, @ 2.8 GHz ?

1.86Ghz core duo :)
