GPU upgrade with older CPU
Okay, so I have a Core 2 Duo E6600 @2.8 GHz with DDR2800 2 gigs ram on windows XP....
Bad Company 2 runs pretty decent at full blast at 1920x1200, but I would like a little more fps as my 8800 GT is hurting!
I don't have a PCI express 2.0 board, but will only be using one graphics card.
Would purchasing something like a 4890 or gtx 260 be wise, or will the cpu bottleneck out? Bad company 2 is the only game I am really playing spare starcraft 2 when it comes out (dobut that will push my current system) so I don't want to drop the $1500+ for a system quite yet!
