Ok so any of you who know me know i have a core i5 3570k with a GTX560 Ti but that machine is getting sn upgrade soon to a radeon card either a 7950 or a 8950 when it arrives on the market, and my question is how well would my old beloved core 2 quad handle the GTX560 as my main first person shoot machine. The i5 is getting the graphics card so it will run my 3 32" samsung monitors for my car simulator.
The main games i would play on the core 2 quad would be Battlefield 3, modern warfare 3, crossfire, combat arms, crysis franchise, spec ops the line, counterstrike series and a few others.
The specs of the machine would be
Core 2 quad Q8400 2.66GHZ
4gb DDr2 ram
I will need to feed the machine a new power supply but thats no big deal
So how would the quad perform with my fps games?
I have a pretty good idea of how it will perform as the pace which its currently running with my old GT430 i would just like to double check. Screen resolution is 1366x768
And specs for the i5 sfter the upgrade for those nterested
Core i5 3570k 3.4GHZ
Asus P8H61-m LE
2x 500gb Samsung sata 2 7200rpm HDD
Hd radeon 7950 or HD Radeon 8950
