Which lga 775 for BFBC2?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hey,

I'm putting together a system of old parts for my brother to play BFBC2, it isn't supposed to be the greatest system ever but its not bad for a build on the cheap, this is what I have so far...

mobo: xfx 750i sli
ram: some generic ddr2 2gb
psu: cooler master 700w
gpu: 2x 8800gtx in sli

Right now all I have laying around is a c2d e6420 @2.13ghz with a Zalman cooler.

With this setup the game isn't running very smoothly, my guess is that the cpu is the bottleneck, what would be a good replacement for like $100-200?

Or if there are any other little bottlenecks let me know!

2Gb of Ram certainly isn't helping.

And remember BFBC2 loves quad cores.

BC2 is a quad core based game, a 8400 won't be as great as getting a Quad.

As its an nvidia chipset board you can alter the RAM:FSB ratio..... So no need for the RAM.

I would look into an old Q6600 overclock it a little, im not sure a Q9550 will work on that board without checking...
 
Fun inside...

Pretty much all of the above.

I'm thinking the q6600 might be the way to go, hopefully I won't have to overclock too much cause I don't really trust this board with handling the voltages.

Anybody here have experience with this board?

And thanks for the awesome quick responses!
