Potential Bottleneck with new GPU? Tags: Graphics Cards GPUs Bottleneck Graphics Last response: December 26, 2007 5:07 PM in Graphics & Displays Share nevynev December 26, 2007 9:04:45 AM Hi Guys, My question regards potential bottlenecking. I'm looking to buy a high end 8800 GPU or one of the new 9xxx (whenever they turn up) but wondering if my current system will hold it back at all: Athlon 4400 X2 2GB Ram PSU 650W Hiper Type R Mobo: Asus A8R MVP HDD 2 x 250GB 72,000 Seagates Creative Audigy 4 Windows Vista Ultimate 32 bit Hoping that it will be OK - I do intend in the nearish future to upgrade other components (eventually an entirely new system) but GPU is my priority. Thanks for any help! NevyNev More about : potential bottleneck gpu nevynev December 26, 2007 10:33:36 AM Thanks for the response, Yes, a gamer. Looking to play Crysis at reasonable quality/framerate - would that bring out any bottlenecking? Will my soundcard cause any problems/bottlenecking? Thanks NevyNev itotallybelieveyou December 26, 2007 3:37:09 PM Definitely will be SOME bottleneck but meh... Related resources Potential bottleneck?

If you want a few more frames, go ahead and OC your 4400 a bit, but Crysis is generally more GPU heavy. xerohour December 26, 2007 5:07:55 PM There are very few games that are more Dependant upon the CPU. Pentium D's can still handle any game with little bottlenecking (scratch, Supreme commander)when combined with a high end card. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
