I bought a Powercolor Ati radeon 4870 1GB GDDR5
I have and AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ @3.08 GHZ ( superclocked ) + Adv cooling
I can run all of my games ON MAX (smooth)
Crysis DX10 Ultra high 1440 X 980 around 30 FPS
Is my X2 4000+ bottlenecking my Videocard ?
Motherboard : BIOSTAR NF-560 A2G AM2+ PciE X16 2.1
RAM:4 x 1 GB DDR2 800Mhz Transcend
PSU:MS Industries Pro 550W
I know its a dumb question , but i heard that some CPUs are bottlenecking the 4870 .
If you REDUCE the detail but your FPS does not increase dramatically then you have a bottleneck... With crysis your always goin to be hitting a GPU bottleneck anyway with todays hardware...That game is just too demanding!
If your only getting a 4fps increase when u drop to MIN....then that actually sounds like a bottleneck! Try adding on 2xAA and get some extra usage out of that G-card...because its bottlenecked anyway you shouldnt see a decrease in FPS, however if you DO get lower FPS then your system is not bottlenecked...haha, sorry for the confusion!
