Re: CPU choking GTX 295
I like my 3.85ghz quad. no cpu limits here. ;-) I think I will actually try to make it last a couple more years. Never been this satisfied with cpu performance.
But on that note, I have another dual core rig and I like it a lot too and it is only 3ghz. There really aren't many games you notice a difference. If you got a lot of extra cash though, get the quad core. It's a great way to run different programs at once!
Consoles: Xbox Elite with HDDVD drive and PS3.
Panasonic AX200U Widescreen Projector (1280x720), 160" HighPower Screen, AND A BIG COUCH.
