Any speedy dual core would compliment any GPU fine in gaming. My article suggests this. It's just goofy seeing something like a GTX580 with a slower CPU like an X2 5000+ or something. For gaming itself the GPU is the #1 thing you want the most power.

What is your budget and etailer of choice and I'll pick a card out for you.

Hi and thanks

I'm from the UK so English retailers or ebayUK are normally my ways to shop

The maximum I want to spend on a card is around 120-150 and even that is for me quite a large push I don't know if that can even get an improvement to be honest hehe.

Thanks for the help

You'll see a ridiculous amount of graphics improvement by getting this.
EVGA GeForce GTX 650Ti SSC PCI-Express Graphics Card (01G-P4-3652-K1) with Assassins Creed III PC Game [01G-P4-3652-K1]

Plus it comes with a free game =)
