Default Re: New to graphic cards, have a question about upgrading to 260.

It's not so much the benefits lost from using a dual core, it's just the 3800 X2 chip doesn't quite cut it for high performance anymore. If you want a very good dual core for gaming, look into an Intel E84/8500. Cheap (price vs. performance) and goes well with the GTX2** series.
