Go ahead .. your CPU wont be limiting your performance in recent/future games expect in some rare occasions.

The performance increase by adding another card is simply amazing! Try out FEAR with one card and then with two;)

question, what got you worried about performance when you look at a system like that? Unless you were just telling a guy at a store you want this and that and didn't know your parts for some reason, then I could understand in the sense of newbie. You do know how good that system is,right? you are using a dual core, more setup for the future than most of us. Gaming will be slow at times because of the cpu going one core at a time. But still your overall cpu is speed is fine. Go get the 2nd bfg!
