I have this CPU and I have been running games smoothly until now where I need a DirectX 11 version card. Should I go for GTX 650 Ti or HD 7790? Thank you!

I have this CPU.I overclocked it to 3.6 GHz and it is running perfectly.I got it in 2008(when it was realeased) and it is still a very nice GPU.It is a best value for money since i found it with 52$ price.It can handle games like NFS Rivals with high settings at 35-50 FPS (if you remove the 30 FPS lock).

Well it can handle modern games with medium to high settings coupled up with you gpu at that resolution. But its better if you switch to an i3 or i5.

It is rather decent, but as deviljin suggested, a more powerful CPU would come in handy, since your GTX 560 could be bottlenecked by this CPU, but even with this you should be good for gaming at 1024x768 :D

How do you mean to overclock this at four cores? You mean to unlock? No such a thing is not possible with this CPU.Some AMD 'quad' core have that feature.But you can OC it to 3.6 with no problems.
