Well that chart isn't that accurate. They tell you the general performance of a cpu. If you look at this benchmark, your amd cpu performs worse than an i3 on skyrim. But the chart does say that the upgrade won't be worthwhile because it's only 1 tier higher.
If you upgrade your cpu, you will have to upgrade your motherboard. If you are close to a microcenter, get the intel i5 35070k with a motherboard combo. If you don't, a 3350p is a good choice if you don't want to spend as much.
Received and installed the card in my rig with a Core 2 Quad Q6600. I'm sure my old CPU is bottlenecking the GPU somewhat, but it's awesome to play Guild Wars 2 on max settings without any lag whatsoever.
Coming from a eVGA 8800 GT, this card is pretty quiet in comparison. Awesome card and even better price!
Are most of you guys selling or keeping the game bundle? If so, for how much?
I probably will unload it, don't really want the bundle and this card was way over my planned budget! But I am set for a long time.
