Default gpu question

how much of a bottleneck would my pd 805 be to a 8800gs?
mind that I'm currently using a real old 9200 so would performance be significant?
btw we're talking stock speeds

i have a pent d 940 and a 8500gt right now and they dont bottle neck because they are both slow enough not to bottle neck. but a 8800gs probly bottleneck a little you shold overclock i herd those are good procs for overclocking(mine is not cant get it past 3.4GHZ) but yoo should go w/ a 8800gt for a few more dollars


The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD


<<< i like rep :D

If you can, like philbar said, get the gt. You might want to overclock your proc a little (shouldn't need too much) to avoid the minor bottleneck. But I don't think that you're going to get that much of a bottleneck.

EDIT: oh, and yes. The performance gain will be huge.
