I bought GTX 570 and found that my current CPU(intel X6800) cant handle it to its max, so i found Q9550 for a very good deal. Since i cant afford changing the entire motherboard that supports DDR3 RAM just for socket change, i intend to stick with LGA775 for a while and upgrade to Q9550 CPU.

In your opinion, how does this CPU handle modern gaming?

Thanks!

Should be fine for most games, I have a Q6600 overclocked to 3.5Ghz and it hasn't had much trouble running Crysis 2, FarCry 2, Battlefield 3, COD:MW3 at 1920x1080 with the highest or near highest settings.
