I ordered a 7950 card today and I was wondering if my CPU will be good enough to not bottleneck the card. I am a little worried since the chip is over 3 and a half years old even though it was pretty high end at the time.
you will be fine...a first gen i7 at 3.5ghz is plenty...what resolution will you be playing on and what games will you be playing...if you play at a super low res then your cpu will bottleneck your card but that is only natural
Oops I meant to include that. 1920x1200 is the resolution I use now and I am thinking about getting a 2560 x 1440 monitor in the near future.
