I have an amd 6400+ running at 3.3ghz and im replacing my old evga nvidia 7950gtko with an ati 5770 1gb. Will the old processor hinder the new video cards performance? This pc is hooked up to a 720p tv and used for video games.

current specs are:
amd 6400+ @ 3.3ghz
nvidia 7950ko
4gb ddr2 800
600W psu

It should be fine. Make sure your running the latest and greatest drivers for your system components (motherboard, video, sound) to get the best performance.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

I dont see any problem thats a decent chip. Granted it wont run like a quad paird with that card but it should give you a huge boost in graphics performance.
