2600K@4.43GHz - Will it bottleneck a MSI Lightning GTX 770 OCed

I can easily OC my 2600K more, but I want it to live for more than 2 and a half years :P Temperatures and noise isnt a prob, but IDK if my 2600K can keep up with a super super OCed 770. I can OC my CPU more if I have to.

    Not an issue. Gonna be a while before a GPU can really overrun a modern Intel CPU, and that's only if Intel keeps tickin' and tockin' with marginal performance improvements.
  2. The newer Intel CPUs are only slightly faster anyway.

    Your true on that note. I just HAD to make sure :)

    Would two 690s overun my 2600K?

    Still probably not. That CPU is remarkably flexible too, so you could probably ratchet up the multiplier if there were any issues. I think there are better ways to spend $2k on graphics cards though. O_O

    They will if you're trying to get 300+ FPS at 1600x900 or something silly like that. But in realistic situations, the CPU should be able to keep up most of the time.
