Well TBH first gen Phenom CPUs weren't that great. See if you can overclock your CPU a little, tho the 1st Phenoms weren't great for overclocking either.

Say lol more please.

At any rate, teh CPU is definitely the slowest between the sLI and cpu.. but it shouldn't limit you THAT much, even given the sucky performance of phenom 1's. (they dont OC well as in they dont get high clocks...)

They just had poor performance, poor ability to OC (it might be one of the better first gens to OC with, but I wouldn't recommend it), and poor stability.

Its quite possible your CPU is the bottleneck in the system. Your weakest link is deffinatly the CPU. Do I think its that BAD of a bottleneck? No, but if you can afford to upgrade.....

On a sidenote, the mobo IS good for overclocking.
