Default Re: GTX 470 on Core 2 Quad Q 8200

Yes the Q8200 is the bottleneck but if you can overclock it you'll be fine. You are coming from a 7900 GS you will see a huge boost in performance and should be able to play Starcraft II maxed out maybe even without overclocking (might have some issues when there's a lot of units on screen and might have to turn down the physics setting). If you're looking to spend less money and don't need all the power (and heat) of a 470 you might want to go with the GTX 460 that should be coming out in July.
