Default Re: AMD 64 cpu and fx 5600

The FX 5600 Ultra will definitely hold your A64 3000+ back in games. Your system will get the most out of the card. In fact the card itself will be the bottleneck in your games. If you can, look at getting a 6800 or 6800 GT. You'll see an enormous increase in performance.
My simple system:

Athlon 64 3200+ "Clawhammer"
Nvidia nForce3 150 board
1024MB Samsung PC-3200 DDR-RAM
BFG 7800GS OC @ 450/1300MHz ForceWare 81.98
Samsung 160GB HDD 7200RPM 2MB cache
HP 16X DVD Writer 400c
Viewsonic 19-inch VX924
