Hi guys wanted to know which one you think is better for gaming?? The Graphics of a GTX 480 or 470 or getting an i7. Also which one would be better to upgrade too. I have seen this discussion in other forums wanted to see what you thought :P !

u must be new to hardware if u not know that simple question

ok

GPU is ALWAYS more important than a cpu when it comes to gaming if u already have a duel or quad core then stick with if for the next 4 years or more

u want a 480 .......
unless u have good air cooling and u want to upgrade in the future good ahead
but if i was u i would buy a 5970
Yeah actually I'm not new to hardware. I thought it was a pretty good question because of the possibility of the new 480's bottlenecking an older Core2, thus not being able to take full advantage of a Fermi card. Mabe I should have phrased the question better.

a Pentium is a bottle neck
a 2.6 ghz duel core is more than enough

unless ur running a very intense custom map in crisys
ive seen it go 100% on a overclocked i7

u can find a benchmark on the net where they run many games on almost every cpu
BUT u will see some websites running games at 800x600 because the gpu almost doesnt do any work at that resolution
as u can see here

oh yeah and a quad core is sometimes very important like bc2 for example
E8400 =21 fps
q6600 =40 fps
Nice, thanks for the info. So it looks like the i7's dont effect FPS in games as much as I thought.
