Default Re: CPU choking GTX 295

Unfortunately, I can't get any more out of my E8500. It seems that 3.56 is the limit. More and more multi-threaded games are hitting the market, so the Core 2 Duos are definitely getting obsolete. It looks like the Q9650 is the way to go. I may try to overclock it to 3.5Ghz.
