8800GT, 8800GTS 512MB or 9800GTX? - Page 2

post #11 of 25
I would imagine there would be a bottleneck on the GTS 512 if you got it. Seems silly if you only want to run the card at 1024x768. The 8800GT would be your best bet, either that or a 9600GT. Your E6600 would bottleneck it I'm sure.

Wow, I'm running an 8800GTS 512MB and MY CPU doesn't bottleneck it (horribly). I may not get the same 3DMarks as a Quad core will, but 3DMarks aren't real world performance.

If money is NOT a concern, then get the 9800GTX.

at that resolution, an 8800gt would suffice. your current CPU is fine, however if you wanted to lessen the "bottleneck" (reguardless of whether it exists in this case) then a very mild OC would help. you deffinately don't need to upgrade the e6600 though.
