I would greatly appreciate some expert advice regarding this issue from anyone who's highly knowledgeable on the subject. The latest games being released seem to stagger my current graphics card and build (GTA iv, BFBC2, CoDMW2, at lowest settings!). Ive been wanting to purchase a new graphics card but I feel hesitant when terms like "bottlenecking" ring in the back of my mind. Im not sure if my current hardware specs would greatly or just mildly hinder the full potential of a newly purchased graphics card so Im asking around for advice on the subject. My thanks in advance... My specs are: AMD Athlon 64X2 5200+ 2.7GHz 8Gb DDR2 (800) RAM @ 400MHz over 4 dimms Veloci Raptor 10k rpm Seriel ATA HD (i know this part wont be a prob) 800 ish Power supply. I know thats important but ill deal with it if the need arises.but ill deal with that if the need arises.
