GTX295 bottle necked by Pentium E6300 or not? Tags: Graphics Cards Pentium CPUs Graphics Product Last response: August 11, 2009 5:56 PM in Graphics & Displays Share andy5174 a b à CPUs August 11, 2009 10:21:12 AM Hi My CPU is Pentium E6300@2.8GHz stock(not C2D E6300). Will a GTX295 be bottle necked by it? If so, what's the best graphic card my CPU can take? How do you determine if a GFX is bottle necked by a CPU or not? Thanks More about : gtx295 bottle necked pentium e6300 sepayne21 August 11, 2009 11:32:45 AM if you're running crysis at very high details, and very high resolution, then your cpu won't bottleneck at all. It depends on the game/rez/details. depending on those things, any cpu will bottleneck a gpu OR any gpu will bottleneck a cpu. andy5174 a b à CPUs August 11, 2009 11:43:36 AM sepayne21 said:if you're running crysis at very high details, and very high resolution, then your cpu won't bottleneck at all.

A card that costs 1/5th of that should do very well at your resolution. If you have that kind of money to spend I'd recommend this stuff; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Your motherboard should be able to use that chip(you may need to update your bios.) Or just buy an HD4850 for now and save up to build an i7 system. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
