e8400 isn't the problem.


Its vRAM dependent which deals with the graphics card.

For me, it will get replaced by summer's end.
I could probably get I to last until this ime 2012? It's hard to buy new gfx cards when your in highschool and need a job...

Oh really? Try maxing out GTA IV on your e8500 at any clock speed. It won't do it and be playable .

The dual core CPU is one problem. But an overclock will help that ALOT. You should be able to pull off medium - high-ish settings easy enough, with the sliders all at 50.

Your 1GB of RAM though, that is DEFINITELY a problem. GTA IV ALONE uses 3.6GB of RAM on my machine. Just the game. Granted I'm playing it maxed out too though....

Another raM question: should I keep buying pc2-6400 corsair xms2? Or Kingston hyper x 8500? Obviously Kingston, but my MOBO says it only supports 800 MHz dual channel. ***? And I have another gig of ram, but for some reason my of won't boot with it....

I'd say grab the Kingston Hyper X 8500 sticks that are 5-5-5-15, 2.30v. Those are the same sticks I've got, but mine are the older 800 sticks. They clock VERY nicely. You should be able to get 1100+ stable out of them .

Higher clocked memory will keep you from having issues with a CPU overclock later on.
