Computers falling behind with games at the moment, been looking around and found this on clearance for $300 "EVGA GeForce GTX 260+ 896MB Super clocked" do you think this will give me the extra performance or would my cpu bottleneck its performance. Or should I invest that money into lets say new cpu gpu and main ?.

I have the 8800gts 320. atm and I over clocked it, only gave me 2000 more points in 3d mark. But didn't help with games still getting low fps and lagy. I formatted aswell so it's a fresh install with latest drivers.

And a e6850 dualcore 3ghz processor. Tried squeezing what I could out of and and overclocked to a 3.7ghz with aftermarket cooler but would be nice to return it back to a 3ghz or even a slight over clock of a 3.2gz cos it running at 50deg under load wich aint to bad but cooler the better

And a p35 giga board. With 4g of ram.

cheers

If you can wait for a few months, the next generation of GPU's are just around the corner, you could probably get someting 50% - 100% faster for the same price or buy the older cards for cheap.
