If you can stretch it, this will blow away all those combos by a long shot.

This CPU will not be able to do anything. Its very old and very cheap even for its time. It will bottleneck about 80% of a bottom end GPU.

Don't go with an old long dead socket like 775. Mu build is vastly superior.

I have this processor and paired with the GTS250, I can run FSX on near full graphics.

What resolution? at 1080p you wouldn't get past low settings. That is a super easy game to max also. Try to run battlefield on low.


It just doesn't makes sense to buy tech that is 4+ years old when you can have current and much better tech for the same or only slightly more money.
