well i know if you got a bad processor and a good graphics card many times it will bottleneck. What im asking is will it now bottleneck with the processor that i have? Just hoping i didnt waste my money on a new graphics card.

Well I have a 1.8 Celron on this laptop and a 128mb ATI 9600+ Pro. And I can run HL2 and CS:S great. So I doubt you'll have much more of a problem. the 9800 doesn't radically differ from the 9600.

No, you will not have a bottlenek.
the Radeon 9800 pro ain't that high end of a card. It's a good card, but a 2.4 won't bottleneck it.

Or, the bottleneck will be so minscule u won't notice it. I mean, of course it'll help if you OC ur processor to speeds of 2.8, but it's not that big of a problem.

a 2.4 and a 6800 is a bottlenek
