I had a Q9550 and a 470/460. I got worse performance than w/ the 260.

A friend paired a 460 w/ his Phenom 3 core and experienced the same thing. Plopped in a 5870 and bam, super fast framerates. So you can do it the hard way and flip around gear like I did, or the easy way...

Yeah I have been wondering this too my q6600 is at 3ghz and cant go any higher (not on this board anyways). I want to get a 560ti to play bf3 at high settings, but there are conflicting reports: some say it wont bottleneck, some say it will, some say the 5870 wont.

Argg confused

lol the only way the 5870 wont would only be true if it is a slower card..

which i think it is...

the only way to truly find out if it will bottleneck..

is to try it...

if you do bottleneck you will she a lower max FPS then other people with the same card..

but you will probally find that the min FPS will be about the same...

which is the main thing...

lol, in intel section few days ago was a thread about q6600 and 580 xD

no it will not bottleneck 560 XD

There will always be a bottleneck, but won't be all that noticeable at all. I am running my q6600 @ 3.2 GHz at the moment with my 470. I used to run it at around 3.6 GHz, but turned it down once I realized that outside of benchmarks, it didn't really make much of a difference. No need to get a new cpu, get a better cooler, oc it a little bit and wait for ivy bridge or something. Done't waste money on a new cpu, mobo and ram right now.

EDIT: You could even run it at stock. When I did that in most games, I lost like around 3 to 5 fps at the most, not that bad, and I wouldn't have noticed it if I wasn't staring at the little fps logo from fraps instead of actually playing the game .

50$ to 70$ for the proper cooling. If you were to buy a new CPU that would cost you over 200$ plus the cost of a new motherboard, probably around another 200$, because most likely you would have to upgrade your socket too.

Cooling really is not that expensive when you consider you will most likely be able to OC it at least to 3.2ghz and have it running most likely cooler than running stock with a stock cooler.

It will and it does. A Q9550 chokes a 460 and not just in BC2.
