Not when your using such a low end card. Even if a game is more CPU intensive than video card intensive, you still need you use reasonable components. I played SC2 on my FX 6100 with my 6950, and i never dip below 70fps.......
Man I do have a couple of hd 6950/6970s and tried them a couple of times with games. I am not a heavy fps gamer I don't play bf3 and only play the story mode of cod series. I used to thought I need better gfx card for this game(sc2) but as time goes by I picked this one so I can dedicate my other cards for mining. But I guess I will power on my bulldozer with the better gfx card and give it another shot. I really want to see what I can achieve with it.
Another data I have is I ran intel burn test which I think uses linpack to test the cpu power. The rough results I got (all under default settings) is:
fx 4100 @4.4GHz 14GFlops
2500k @ 4.5GHz 58-59 GFlops
PII x6 @ 3.7GHz 67-69 GFlops
If intel burn test only uses fpu, which I'm not quite sure, then to make things comparable I should double the fx4100 results and times 2/3 for the phenom II x6 results. make it fx4100/2500k/phenom II = 28/58/44.5. Still unsatisfying for bulldozer.
