Solved Pentium DC E6300 bottleneck HD5850? Tags: CPUs Pentium Bottleneck Last response: December 28, 2009 2:59 PM in CPUs Share xNukeWar123x December 28, 2009 9:55:44 AM Is it okay to add new card for my E6300 3.4ghz(OC) rig ?? Is there any bottleneck?? I play game with 1600x900 resolution and max settings(if possible) and do you think it would be quite enough to stress HD5850 to prevent bottleneck?

Overclock the E6300 a little more and you should be good to go. (If you wanted to OC all the way, the E5200/5300 can both do around 3.8GHz, so the E6300 can do 4Ghz without too much effort) Otherwise, the charts stated that the E6300 @ stock would bottleneck a 4890 or greater. So your current configuration would reduce most bottlenecks for your GPU. 4890 < GTX285 < 5850 Can't find your answer ? Ask !
