Will my CPU Bottleneck my 5770? Tags: Bottleneck CPUs Sapphire Components Last response: June 26, 2010 4:22 PM in Components Share crazy359 June 26, 2010 1:32:28 AM I am getting a Sapphire or XFX 5770 really soon. I have a Intel e5200 running at 2.93ghz. I will OC it to about 3.2 when i get my new cooler. Is it a bottleneck at the moment for upcoming games like MAFIA 2?

There is no way to build a perfectly balanced PC, some components will always bottleneck others, but some matches can come close.

Basically, most games the CPU will not be the bottleneck. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
