Am I bottlenecking

I have recently bought a Asus GTX 750ti and I noticed that I am getting multiple FPS spikes. And I wondered if that was related to bottlenecking?

My Specs are
CPU: AMD FX 6300 @ 3.5Ghz
MOBO:Asus M5A97 R2.0
Ram: G-Skill Ares 8Gb Dual Channel
GPU: Asus Gtx 750ti 2Gb GDDR5
HDD: Segate barracuda 1Tb 7200RPM
WD blue 1Tb 7200RPM
PSU: FSP Aurum 650W
OS: Windows 7 Proffesional 64bit

Could anyone tell me if that would bottleneck. And if there was a way to this (underclock the card).Or would overclocking my CPU help? This build is only a few months old while the card is about a week old.

  1. overclocking your cpu would help a bit, but games spike different fps in different areas.. hell you could probably overclock your gpu too. wouldnt hurt
  2. Yes you're in luck you can OC that CPU & GPU, your mobo is rev 2. so as I've read from that you shouldn't have problems reaching an OC of 4.0-4.1GHz & the 750 Ti is a very awesome card to OC. You can refer to this vid for as to how nice it is to OC this card:

    Shouldn't be bottlenecking actually... I have a phenom x4 mixed with a 670 and I have a bottleneck... To test it: Change your game settings/ resolution. If nothing changes your CPU is bottlenecking. Also check in task manager how much load is on the CPU + GPU. Use task manager and GPU-Z. If your CPU is at 98/99% load a lot of the time and the GPU is far under that, you are limiting your GPU.
