Default Gaming processor

Hey, I know this question has probably been posted before but I did some searches and cannot find a direct answer, all I do is play games on my computer and im getting a 939 system and stuck on what processor to buy. I have a x8800gto2 (OC to x850xtpe) vid card. Wondering if there is a real difference in gaming between say 3000venice and 3500 when playing the newest games. Or is money better spent on say 2 gigs instead of 1. thanks

no man, new games like fear and hl2 rely more heavily on cpu because of the physics engine

games with heavy physics and ragdoll effects are very cpu dependant. take hl2, ut2004 as examples.

I would get at least a 3200+ thats just me. It seems to run newer games fine, depending on other componenst such as RAM, Video card, mobo and power supply.

get the GT buddy. Those things unlock and you can save big bucks. Unlock the pipes on your own! You don't need to pay Nvidia 100 bucks for that.

You should be fine with a 3200 in my opinion you should concentrate on a good video card, games like F.E.A.R the more important thing is video card atleast for this game.
