5970 with X6800 775 Core2Duo Extreme? Bottleneck!?! Tags: Graphics Cards Bottleneck SLI Graphics Last response: January 29, 2010 5:30 PM in Graphics & Displays Share vpsaline January 29, 2010 5:14:03 PM Would it defeat the purpose to upgrade to a 5970 using a x6800 @3666? I would be replacing 8800gtx SLi.

If I were you I'd sell your 8800's and your 775 setup and go for a s1366 setup with a 5850/5870, I think you'd be much happier. : ) m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
