Default EVGA geforce 8800gts

About 1-2 weeks ago I posted a topic saying that I bought an EVGA geforce 8800gts. Most people replied saying that the power supply and processor would make the graphics lag. Anyway My computer doesn't lag at all playing games or anything that I do. I didn't replace anything like the cpu/power supply. I just thought I would let you guys know that incase their is somebody else with the same computer specs wanting to buy an 8800GTS and doesn't know if it will lag.

thats not a problem.. its a matter of you misinterpreting a post... in fact.. I even quoted my old post:

i forgot to write the X2's in the OP... but you get the idea.. I never said what you claimed...

I think u may need some ice for that burn :0

Not to take anyone's side, but people do get a little overzealous in here about bottlenecking/ recommending better gpu's than what's needed/ recommending bigger power supplies than needed. But hey, it's a tech forum, that's to be expected.
