I am thinking of buying a 2nd BFG GTX 275 OC 896mb to give my computer some extra fps in games since I use a 1920x1200 monitor. I wanted to check and see if you guys think I will get results from this upgrade or if my bottleneck lies elsewhere. Here are my specs
Core 2 E6700
Asus P5Q (Or is it PQ5)?
Im thinking my cpu might be the bottleneck and that would require a much more extensive upgrade. Let me know. Thanks!
Your chipset will not support SLI, so your only real options are to OC, swap the processor, or swap your current GTX 275 for a GTX 285, GTX 295, or crossfire 2 HD 4890s as your board doesnt support SLI, or if you have the plain P5Q you only have 1 PCI-E 16x slot
Any recommendations on learning how to OC? I OCed once to see if I could get GTA 4 running decently and it BSODed, even though it was a relatively mild OC. May have just been the program but that turned me off from it for the time being.
what games do you play? i can play most games at almost maxed settings at 1920x1200 with a good old 8800gt. Your probobly better off upgrading the cpu. games love lots of cpu cache memory. like the other post said, q9550 or e8400 would be the last cpu upgrade for your current system, and one of the best. sli after that is an option, but it is a pricey one.
