Re: Going from x1600 to 8800GT SC
Oh yes that is quite a large bottleneck you have going there....your putting in a very powerful card with a now outdated single core CPU at only 2.09ghz.
if you really want to get the money out of that card and give you FPS that will be very good for just about any game you will need to through in another 250-300. That will give you a motherboard and very fast Cpu combo that can be very highly overclocked and some new DDr2 ram.
