See if you can overclock your CPU a little, tho the 1st Phenoms weren't great for overclocking either. towhog66 May 28, 2009 2:41:46 AM ok every one said it was a good OC. AND THE MOBO TO... 1st gen not that good lol it what ways?

Ask ! Get the answer daedalus685 May 28, 2009 3:40:41 AM 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...) Helltech a b Î Nvidia May 28, 2009 4:00:22 AM towhog66 said:ok every one said it was a good OC. AND THE MOBO TO... 1st gen not that good lol it what ways? 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. towhog66 May 28, 2009 6:25:02 AM ok after i get a new 9800 gtx i look in to getting a better cpu. the mobo will work with am-3 cpu's so that will help... is there a better am2+ cpu then what i have? i thought i got the best one out there! i only paid $85.00 for lol.... out of box.... thanks guys for all the info................. Helltech a b Î Nvidia May 28, 2009 6:27:24 AM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I think the 940 is the best AM2+ cpu out there, but I could be wrong. There are a few better then the one you have. You have the best of the first generation, so its not TOO big of a deal. towhog66 May 28, 2009 6:59:46 AM the amd is fare a better cpu then the one i have... ill save up and get it....... but first i got things to get first... lol 940 looks good. towhog66 May 28, 2009 12:53:43 PM it rocks every game i played so fare..... 44 fps to 119 lol 1680 by 1050 lol. towhog66 March 21, 2010 8:14:05 PM i just got the amd 940 be.... yea towhog66 July 23, 2012 2:35:38 AM i got the 940 be last yr and it rocks.... ty Can't find your answer ?
