Considering purchasing another GTX 280 for my system when the price is right. Currently I have a Q6600 overclocked to 3.0GHZ. If I purchase another GTX280 will this push the limitations of bandwith the Q6600 will support? I have a XFX 780i motherboard so I can upgrade to 45nm if I need to. Please let me know what you all think.
Thanks for the reply! To be more specific with my question; Would a Yorkfield Q9*** 45nm be less of a bottleneck than a Q6600? Logically I believe the answer is no, but it makes sense that a faster clock speed would cause less of a bottleneck. The XFX 780i overclock is great. I can acheive 1600mhz FSB, but I'm not sure thats where the problem would be.
