will an overclocked fx-6300 work with 2x 660 tis in sli

the cpu I have is an AMD FX-6300 that I have overclocked to 4.1 Ghz. Will this cause a bottleneck with two 660 tis in sli? If so how much? I will be playing games like Battlefield and Crysis 3.

p.s. I will be playing on a 60Hz 1080p monitor.

  1. Yes, and alot. It's much too slow for an SLI system, you can get away with it but it won't be the best system ever.

    If you did not buy the cards , go for GTX 760 in SLI.

    and dont worry about bottle neck.

    I only have one card right now and not much money. I thought that I would get more bang for my buck by getting another 660 ti than getting a higher end card. I don't necessarily want to go down the SLI path.

  5. The bulldozers were great. And the Piledrivers are even better at lower power consumption plus other fixes/optimization. They won't be "too slow" compared to Intel chips. Intel chips are better on benchmarks and numbers (such as 10-15 fps diff.). But with real-life gaming experience, they're all the same.

    Dont waste your money on 660 ti , sell your card and get 2x GTX760

    the 660ti is 192 bit , the 760 is 256 bit and ALOT faster and ONLY 240$

    DONT DO IT ! the 660ti is not worth paying almost the same price of GTX 760
  7. Agree. just buy a 760 and sell your 660 (Or keep it as collector's item).
