I would say, if you overclock to 4.0 GHz, you should be fine. What I would worry about is the dreaded BSOD. | Report abuse xhui November 28, 2010 7:15:29 PM Asus P7P55D-E Pro with i5 760 psu CoolerMaster Silent Pro Gold 80 Plus 1000watts 1 gtx 580 right now, but plan to add another one than the price lower i like to know the least amout of OC the cpu for 1x580 and 2x580, so it won't bottleneck the 580 | Report abuse sharr November 29, 2010 12:57:15 PM the second u add that second GPU your CPU will be bottlenecking your system. given the fact your CPU wouldnt be able to handle two gtx 480s, i dont even want to imagine what would two gtx 580s would do to it. no matter how high u will get your CPU it still gonna be hardcore-bottlenecking your system. my advice, if u wanna go for 2way gtx580 SLI, you need a MUCH more powerful CPU, a 6.4GT/s CPU to be more precise. whatever u decide, GL and HF doing it PS: dont even think about going AMD with gtx580 SLI! | Report abuse Related ressources I5 760 3.6ghz bottleneck a gtx 670 - Forum I5 760 hinder gtx 670 full performance?? - Forum Gtx 680 bottleneck i5 760 cpu - Forum GTX 580 Bottleneck - Forum Sell i5 760 and 6870 for bulldozer and better card? - Forum Ask the community Publish xhui November 29, 2010 6:26:51 PM have this set up with 1 gtx 580 | Report abuse xhui November 29, 2010 7:40:21 PM thanks, didn't mean one game. just want to get the most out of sli 580 if im getting it. | Report abuse xhui November 29, 2010 7:40:27 PM Best answer selected by xhui. | Report abuse mrtoesterman November 29, 2010 7:45:36 PM 4.1ghz is where my 760 bottle necks..... basiclly just freeze screen for 2 mins....
