Re: Bottlenecking CPU and GPU?
You wouldnt be getting the full performance benefit from the 8800 if u used it on ur cpu i dont think, could be wrong. Also if you're willing to spend a lot on a gfx might be worth upgrading cpu if ur after top notch gaming performance. My card would work a lot better with a core duo. 3dmark gets 8200 with a core duo id be looking at ( a decent core duo ) around 11-12k.
