Help Upgrading CPU Please Tags: CPUs Graphics Cards Last response: February 5, 2013 1:04 AM in CPUs Share SmorlFox February 4, 2013 11:50:27 PM Hi Guys, I have just recently updated my computers graphics card (to a Radeon HD 6670 2gb GDDR3) and am generally happy enough with the results but i can't help thinking a better CPU would benefit me. My PC is an Acer Aspire T180 AMD 64 Athlon X2 When I updated the graphics card I also boosted the memory to 4gb (4 x 1GB 800mhz sticks) and fitted a new PSU (550watts) I am actually unsure as to what motherboard is inside my tower and so am stuck, and clueless really, as to what is the optimum CPU I could install in it. Am I right in assuming that the CPU is "bottlenecking" the performance here? I would be very grateful for any help in this matter. Thank you in advance.
