7800GTX CPU Limited?
 

Want to to a 'long lasting' upgrade and I'm reading this card is CPU
limited (I run a A64 3500+) Any thoughts?

Thank you!

It depends on the game and/or resolution. A 3500+ seems fine to me.

I was thinking I've never seen anyone ask an intelligent question
regarding a graphics card being CPU limited.

This would depend entirely on what game you're playing. For older games you
definitely won't be CPU limited. Considering you've got an A64 3500+ it's
hard to imagine your CPU would ever be the bottleneck -- especially if you
play newer games at ultra-high detail and resolution.

Highly possible, especially if you have an LCD monitor and are stuck at
1280x1024 maximum resolution.
