  1. Well... on every game that can take advantage of more than two cores yes.But still go ahead and buy a new card, you'll still see a significant increase in FPS.
  2. Best answer
    There would be a small bottleneck but mostly your problem would be with newer games that require a quad core CPU. The PCI-E 2.0 slots would not matter at all. The CPU would hold back the graphics card somewhat though.

    Yes but dont be too worried. There is always a bottleneck in a pc, and when you fix one you create another. So dont worry too much about bottlenecks. The only time to care is when it really affects your systems performance and causes you issues.
  4. the bottleneck depends on how you will be playing a particular game...high resolution?ultra settings?

    There would be an increase in your FPS but I don't think you can maximize your VGA. If you can upgrade your CPU, then go ahead :) Me myself is using a Core 2 Quad core and this being ancient, I think my rig is not fully capable of handling high end VGAs. hope this helps! :)
  6. does it harms the graphic card in some way.i need it till i upgrade to a new cpu though

    I dont think so, you just wont be able to fully maximize the potential of your VGA :)
  8. Yeah, the PSU has to have enough amps to run the card.
  9. I think your system would run fine, just make sure your powersupply can handle your VGA.
  10. A GTX 660 Ti and an HD 7850 both recommend a 450w power supply.

    Stick with a quality brand like Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling, XFX, Silverstone, Enermax, OCZ or Antec. You can find one of these brands just about as cheap as a junk brand so there is no reason to not buy a quality power supply.

    Running the graphics card with an older CPU will not harm it.
  11. i have a seasonic 520 watts
  12. Then you are fine for either card.
  13. thanx for the help
