Yes, but by that logic, it also means that if you keep your old GPU, it will be DOUBLE outdated within months...
Besides, if my 8800gts is outdated, then outdated is just fine and dandy by my standards.

what im saying is dont skimp on a CPU to only bottleneck your GPU, that is if you do upgrade your GPU in the future without upgrading your CPU

I will be getting the HD 4850, and if that sucks, then I'll get the 8800GTS 512. I'm going to either get the e8400, q6600, or the AMD tri-core processor. Which CPU should I get?

For gaming, I'd recommend the E8400.
