Hi all, had some questions regarding an upgrade to a gtx 480 while running a Q9300 at 3.3ghz. First, i would like to know if I will have a cpu bottleneck even when oced to 3.3ghz?
I have researched and found that at stalk settings the Q9300 will bottleneck the 480 slightly. But i would like some input as to what extent the bottleneck would do to performance, and if ocing it slighlty higher may help or just keep it at 3.3ghz and roll with it....
So any suggestion/opinions/recommendations are totally welcome and would be appreciated.. thanks
More aboutupgrading please
Hello and welcome to the forums A C2Q @ 3.3 would be fine for a GTX 480. As for other recommendations,well your rig looks quite good,just make sure you have an adequate PSU for your card
Thankyou Maziar for replying!! That makes me feel a lot better for sure! My power supply should be fine, i have a nzxt 800 watt psu and its been great even when i have the cpu and gpu oced.
