Default cpu/videocard compatability

my friend says that i should get a 2.4 ghz processor if i want to use the 7600GT in my system. i'm buying the amd 3200+ venice, will that suffice?

dude, your processor is more than enough. the 3200 is worse than yours. keep the one you have.

Whats in your sig...? Eh, anyway, any processor would work just fine with the processor. A 3200 might be a bit of a bottleneck, but it would work.

JUST CUZ YOU HAVE A 1.x GHZ AMD PROCESSOR, IT DOESNT MEAN ITS SLOW. A 3800 IS EQUAL TO LIKE A PENTIUM D 3.2 ghz.

a 3200+ venice just perfectly fine for a 7600GT. Actually quite a nice combonation if you ask me. The cpu *might* bottleneck the video card, but it bottleneck it much if it does.

well you can bottleneck, its when you have like a slow cpu with a fast video card.. well the video card needs the cpu, but if the cpu cant do commands as fast as the video card wants it. it will bottleneck the system and it will make it slower. but 7600GT with 3200+ is fine

Don't like the last line of your sig, get rid of it, or I will.
