What's the minimum CPU to avoid a bottleneck with an ATI Radeon HD 4870.
I'm looking at cutting down the price of a computer I'm putting together, but I can't seem to google a good answer to this question.
I'd Like to stick with AMD because they seem to have the price per performance on their side at the minute. I'm currently eyeballing an AMD Phenom 9600 for $100, but I'm also considering an 6000+ X2 because of the higher clock which should help in gaming at a cheaper price.
This is a secondary question,
what do you guys think of the cheap SSDs that OCZ is putting out. In particular I'm thinking of this one. Seems awful cheap compared to many. I really haven't kept up on the news about these guys.
