yeah jack i forgot about that cpu, it is compatible, and its overclockable as well. Highly overpriced though, at least 125$ The t9500 is like 20 bucks, and runs all the latest games. Your 8800gts, for comparasion the 9800gts is siginifcantly better, and with todays games its runs them all decently, the only games 9800gts cant run are crysis 3 and the new need for speed which require DX11 cards only. And yes 9800gts will run Battlefield 4, all be it i was playing on low, it still looked damn good and i was getting like 45 fps. See bf4 can be played in dx9 dx10 or dx11, so my 9800gts was playing it in dx9 or dx10 cause its not a dx11 card.
And the same thing goes for the gtx260 gateway fx, although the gtx 260 is better than the 9800gts, with modern gaming its not going to make a difference, youll still be playing hi quality real pc games at low. Now i havent even talked about the console ports, for some reason alot of games that had first been released on playstation or xbox like Deadpool, Deadspace 3, Mass Effect 3, play on all high settings on the gateway fx 9800gts or gtx260. You guys know why that is right, because the gateway fx video card is alot newer and better than the xbox 360 or the ps3.
But next Gen games for the most part, xbox one and ps4 are gonna run be like the high end real pc games, your gonna start runing them on low, but it still beats any cheap laptop in the cheap 300 to 600$ price range, most of those laptops cant even load any of those games, and if they do its gonnna be laggin, at like 10-20 fps, the majority of laptops just dont have dedicated graphics.
