    The__tweaker, your CPU will be the limiting factor I'm afraid :(

    When I tested the Leadtek GeForce3 TD last year (a slower card than what you're getting), it was held back greatly by my 1GHz Pentium III. How do you tell if your CPU is the bottleneck?

    Easy. Load up your favourite game at 640x486 16-bit colour, and get the benchmark result. Then try ramping up to 1024x768 32-bit colour. If the two scores are within 10% of each other, then your CPU is the bottleneck. On the other hand, if your score more than halves, your video card is the bottleneck.

    So the ideal balance between CPU and Video Card is a degradation of between 10~50% between the two settings I outlined above :)

    yea although in a couple of months amd's thourebred core will be well and truly dominating price/performance unless intel come up with something special again

    which could quite easily happen:shoot3:

    also i wouldn't get rambus as it does not have much support behind it for upgrades and ddr offers almost the same performance unless you are doing workstation number crunching
    then again it's hard to speculate wat will happen in a few months...intel will have 533 rambus and 400mhz ddr...AMD had better come up with something more special than mere die shrink if they want to survive happily
