    Hello Guru friends!!!

    I've just upgraded my graphic car to an ATI HD 5770.
    As you guys can see on my signature it is severely being bottlenecked by my Pentium D.

    I've run the unigine heaven benchmark and i scored 732 points with
    Resolution:1280X1024
    Anti-aliasing: none
    Tessellation: enabled

    :bang: i've been monitoring gpu usage with msi afterburner and it rarely goes beyond 60%...

    Any suggestions on what is the ideal processor for me to upgrade to?

    Thanks in Advance!!

    by looking at your rig there is 3 thing that could be improved the RAM, CPU, MOTHERBOARD.

    i think the dell motherboard wont even support a C2D

    sell the 5970 back and try to actually build a better comp... a pentium D probably gives a small bottleneck to even a 7900GTX

    A Pentium D! Sigh....

    That thing was terrible even at the time of release............ It bottlenecks a 6800gt!!!

    :D you need a C2D at least.
