Thanks for the quick replies
I already have a very good gaming experience(all my games work maxed out @ 1080p and constantly above 30 fps).
Actually,I've used a 9500GT(sucks,I know) on a P4 2.8/3.0Ghz and there was a terrible bottleneck by the CPU. Also, I've read posts about how the I3-540 somewhat bottlenecks this card.Just wanted to confirm.
And by the way, I can overclock my CPU IF I get a different mobo/unlocked CPU combo for...say 250/300$.
