No, Geforce 8800GTX is not GPU limited, it is a very powerful GPU but my Athlon 64 X2 4400+ Toledo socket 939 is not a very powerful CPU, it is now 3 years old. Really need to upgrade to Yorkfield soon.
Let me show you how 6 games scaled with Geforce 8800GTX on all CPUs from dual core AM2 Athlon 64 X2s to quad core Phenoms and Yorkfield Tomshardware AMD Phenom 9600 Black Edition – A New Hope?
