CPU limited?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
OK so we're talking about my sig rig and I'm wondering what is limiting my system more: CPU or GPU? I have them overclocked as said in the sig and I run on a 19" at 1440X900. I assume CPU limited but not sure as the 8800 GTS 320MB is on the old side. I'm just thinking ahead about upgrading, which probably won't be until some MUCH better GPU's come out but that's another issue. Sorry if I'm incoherent, I usually am after work

I would think your cpu at 3.4ghz should handle that gts fine, I'd go for a new vid card.
The g92 8800gts r $220 after rebate i think.

agreed, an G92 GT or GTS would serve you well, and can be had for quite cheap nowadays.
