Default Re: CPU scaling with GeForce 295 GTX

That was my thought in getting a Q9650, to see if it could get more out of the GTX 295, which it did. But since my mobo isn't up to the challenge (I think I would need a P45 or a X48), I'll wait for a good deal on an i7 setup.

Fast CPU is FTW on a dual GPU setup fo sho.
I am thinking of an i7 but....thats too much capital! I can do it but, would have sacrifice on other things too so, I might just wait till the Q9650 drops some more
