What part to upgrade first? E8200 - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
I already did replace my gpu, from a 8800GT to a GTX 460.

Do you think I can even safely OC my E8200 past 3.2GHz with only 4gb of 800MHz RAM?

Currently FSB is set to 400x8 and everything else is auto with gigabyte inteligent tweaker in the BIOS.

Quad core would be the next logical choice, IMO.

Patriot memory can typically overclock pretty well. But I wouldn't overclock the CPU past 3.2GHz if you are using stock cooling. I have built a couple PC's with the E8200, and I have easily gotten them to 3.4GHz and 3.5Ghz respectively. The 3.4GHz was using 2 x 2GB Mushkin 800 running at 850. I was using G.Skill 1000 2 x 2GB @ 3.5Ghz. Both had very good afermarket cooling however. Get some better cooling on the CPU and overclock it some more IMO. What model/brand is your hard drive? Getting a fast HD might not help your FPS, but it can generally help make the PC much snappier depending on what you have in there right now. The hard drive is generally the bottleneck in a modern system. Good luck.

Not sure what my HDD is, but it is sata2, that is all I can remember. I am looking for FPS anyways.

As for cooling, no need to worry about that. I am running all stock cooling but my basement is a cooler in it's self.

Right now my temps are CPU: 32 idle, 45 load. GPU: 24 idle, 45 load.

Highest I have ever seen my CPU is around 50, and that was after hours of gaming.
