To start off, my machine is this one. Core 2 Quad Q8300, GTX 750 Ti, 4 GB RAM.
I mostly play Cities: Skylines, which is very CPU-bound and causes the system to bottleneck almost immediately. The Q8300 constantly runs at 100% load, while the 750 Ti mostly just laughs it off. Of course this means I can't run the game very fast, but the good news is that instead of lagging, Cities: Skylines just slows down the in-game flow of time. I'm okay with this arrangement.
