I don't think theres a bottleneck to be noticed. Just get 1 more gig of RAM, and overclock that 144.

Oh...you're right. It is a single core. Well in that case, if you have the money, go for the Opteron 165 and 2GBs of RAM.

I would say very slightly as the X1950XT is quite powerful.

Not normal at all, because at that resolution, you should be getting more.
