Re: My Final Upgrade for a While
My new EVGA GTX 560 Ti SC will run those games at the highest settings. My Q9400 is also 2.66ghz and there doesn't seem to be a noticeable bottleneck when I'm playing games. I do find that my CPU is at a greater strain than my GPU, but it is fine. Anyway, that's what I'd recommend upgrading to...
