As i would see it you will most likely not notice any major fps boost in games (maybe a bit in BC2, SC2 etc) but it all depends what you use the comp for...

Just my 2 cents.
If CPU was at 60% load and GPU at 99-100% load, CPU was not the bottleneck, but the GPU.

Edit: You wrote 'the card'. So you probably meant GPU was the bottleneck

(Kanskje vi skal ta det på norsk)?? hehe


With Q8400 and Hd4890 the bottleneck was the HD4890, and since the 4890 is more powerful than 9800GTX, and 2500k is another league vs Q8400, the 9800GTX would bottleneck the 2500k even more.

Yes, I missread the first time. My fault.
