Hey guys I just bought an Alienware X51.I am a casual gamer and bought just the i3 version.
Is it possible for me to update later in the future currently working with the GTX645.
And is the i3 a real bottleneck on performance or it is good enough for mediocre graphic intensive games?
:eek::eek::eek:

I5 is the gaming sweet spot for cpu's, but you can always save an upgrade gpu and cpu so I wouldn't worry it'll be ok for now. Just when it's time to upgrade, go with a better cpu first, otherwise you'll bottleneck a lot and it won't be worth it until you did get a better cpu. I'd wait for the 860 coming out sometime this year for gpu.
