After doing some research I have come to the conclusion that my graphics card is bottleneck my cpu. I was thinking about buying a whole new system uprgrade but there is no real need it if it's just for CoD that I'm playing as I have no interest in any other games. So the second solution was downgrading my card so that the cpu runs smoother but I'm unsure which graphics card to downgrade too? Can use help me out?

Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600

Current GFX Card: Radeon HD6800


It's not very often people would downgrade but I don't see the point upgrading if I can fix this problem another way.

Which card do use think would work well but also get 250fps stable on CoD2 without bottlenecking?

what else do you play?
my set up is rather cheap. and i get 250 fps i pretty much every game i play, cod2/4, csgo, sc2, and ET.

cpu: i3- 3240 overclocked at 3.7
mobo: asrock z77 extreme3
gpu: evga 650ti boost 2gb
ssd and a few TB WD cav. black's

you dont need a very pricy pc to run these old games at max fps either...

a 6850 / 6870 is definitely good enough for steady 250fps on cod2/cod4
your cpu is prolly worse, and it wouldnt do better with a worse GPU next to it.
you should definitely consider getting a new motherboard + CPU + maybe new RAM if yours is still ddr2

In some instances, a downgrade would be good but in this case I would recommend an upgrade. If you do insist I'd go for a 8800 (GT/ULTRA) if you can manage to find one (used for sure)

In the end you can downgrade but for how long will this run effectively? Also what happened with this?
