    wait,how much fps will i lost?and what hardware is bottlenecking the other? (cpu bottleneck gpu or reserved?)
  3. the E8400 might bottleneck the GTX650Ti but not by much . The only thing worth keeping in mind is that games optimized to take advantage of multi-core (quad-core, hexa-core and octal-core) CPUs might provide an experience that's less than ideal, due to the fact that they can't split the workload across more cores. Your next immediate upgrade should be a quad-core CPU.
  4. cpu bottlenecking gpu just may losse few fps.just chill
  5. So can you recommand me a new GPU?And I should OC my card after pluging in?
  6. go with gtx 650ti and get coolermaster hyper evo 212 cooler and overclock the cpu

    After replacing the new main,I don't even know how to oc it.And If you can recommand me a cheaper card (For gaming) I'd appreciated. (Like HD7770?)
