Just bought one of these for $63.50 USD on Amazon. So far, don't have any complaints what-so-ever. Gonna be seeing how far I can push the overclock with it pretty soon, as soon as the CM V8 comes in.

Considering my 750 Ti is running at full tilt with the CPU at stock, It would be safe to say it won't bottleneck a 9600 GT.

R9 290 is the most powerful card of these,just make sure if you are buying a used GPU,be sure its working properly,and if its only 3 months old,it should still have a warranty.Check for warranty! :)

No , its not. Your gfx is weak and it has only 1gb vram. Also you have DDR2 ram, its slower then next gen DDR3.

Me. Ddr2 means old gen cpu, so you can't max out games like gta V, watch dogs or witcher 3

You cant max out some games, but Indeed you can play ACTUAL games and max out some (next gen games, in this scenario, because this was posted 6 months ago), LIKE me= Watchdogs: perfectly playable, cant max out settings though. Shadow of mordor: medium settings, 60fps. Alien isolation: ultra settings, 65fps, Metro Last Light: Ultra settings, 100fps, etc etc.

You need an AM3 or AM3+ motherboard. And I strongly suggest you to get an aftermarket cooler, especialy if you plan to overclock.

okay so I have this cpu paired with ddr2 667 single channel memory. would the single channel+slower speed create a bottleneck? would it be noticeable? I play games like skyrim and arkham city, plus browsing with lots of windows open.

sounds like you have this in an am2+ board. that is limiting everything about this cpu other than straight cock speed. you can find some cheap used am3 boards or newegg still has a few new ones.

i ran my current setup on an am2+ board and when i changed to am3 everything got better. just account for board and ram since am3 uses ddr3.
