Default At what point is the video card overkill?

I was just wondering if getting a card like a 9800xt is useless running a 2.4b ghz processor. Would there be a performance difference between a lower end card and the 9800xt due to the cpu limiting? Thanks in advance.

A 2.4 Ghz processor isnt that bad......

The 9800 XT would run like normal with a processor that good, and you shouldnt have any problems really........I have just a 2 ghz processor and my 9600 XT runs without any problems.

Good luck! *thumbs up*
