I've overclocked my e8400 intel duo CPU to 4.0ghz, so hopefully it will be up to the task.
I have tried playing Rage, fallout: new vegas, and other more recent games. I run them just fine.
My current card is a gtx 9800, overclocked. But i know this needs to be upgraded.
I'm considering 2 options at the moment which are to buy a gtx560ti for $200(ish), or run SLI with 2x gtx460 768mb.(also 200$ total)
First question: Will my CPU be ok for either(both) of these options? I realise skyrim recommended system specs are only speculative at the moment so i'm more interested in whether or not these options are too much for my CPU.
Second question: Will the 2x gtx460 768mb be sufficient to render at 1980x1050 resolution?
Thanks in advance... feel free to bring up any other ideas you think might be helpful. Don't be afraid to tell me my CPU is not up to snuff for the GPUs but i'd prefer it if i don't get answers like "Your CPU sucks, get a new one." If you reckon my CPU is not good enough for these GPUs i would absolutely LOVE to be educated on WHY it is not. If all hope is truly lost i will get a second-hand xbox but i'd really prefer not to go to consoles (vomit).
