  1. I don't think so it will
  2. Nothing terminal, what games are you playing and at what resolution ?

  3. No, unless you are playing something CPU intensive (WoW, Starcraft, Skyrim, Civilization etc).

    I play GTA 4 which is a CPU intensive game. I already have the first symptoms of cpu bottlenecking. i hardly get 5 fps more on the R6850 than on my geforce GT 240.

    Well i think i solved this. I need a new CPU, I play GTA 4 the most cpu intensive game. i hardly got 4 fps more on the R6850 than on my geforce GT 240. i play on 1920x1080 resolution which is why i bought the R6850 and dirt 3 seems smooth on ultra settings with AA on X8 and 1920x1080 resolution. i get 60 fps while on my GT 240 i got 35 fps without AA and other settings were the same
