    I'm using the G530 CPU and I intend to upgrade the VGA to GTX 460. I've asked for opinions from other forums and they said that it could be a huge bottleneck when combining them. They said that the highest GPU for me is the GTS 450. What do you think? Please show me some suggestions.
    My full spec is
    GA-H61M-S2PV (rev 2.0)
    CPU G530
    GPU: ASUS nVidia GTS 450 GDDR3
    2x2 GB 1333 KingMax Memory
    Acbel 550W CE2

    Shouldnt be too big of a bottleneck with single threaded games but multithread may get tricky.

    Have you thought of an I5 upgrade?

    Dual core Sandy Bridge (basically what the G530 is) could probably handle a better card than the GTX 460.

    You shouldn't have a problem. No bottleneck.

    +1 erocker!

    You could always try to OC the CPU some if needed but that combo should handle most modern games without issue. Still more powerfull then your console ;)

    I have a relative with an old p4 AGP system that still plays a lot of games, granted the resolution is only 1280 x 1024 but still :eek:

    yeah, people just look at the name "Celeron" and they all recall the s478 POS that carried that name.

    Ever since the Conroe architecture they are quite capable CPUs. Loved the old Cely E3400, clocked them easily to 3.4Ghz (260x13) beating the pricier C2Ds. :D
