He is right, wen i upgraded from my 8500gt to my 8800gt, i also tryed my setup with a E2180 and i still got more fps with 8800gt + E2180 than Q6600 + 8500gt...
Though the cpu does make a slight difference, all depends on what games you play, some are graphically intence others require cpu usage to run lots of.. umm.. thingy ma jigs in teh local area
Like CSS, hardly cpu intence, but bioshock and far cry 2? They work em hard.
What cpu are you running if it cant compete with an AMD!
Must be like a 1.2 celly! haha
