Thanks. System Specs as follows (nothing OC'd) Monitor 1: Acer G24 (DVI) Monitor 2: Acer S243HL (HMDI) OS: Windows 7 Home 64bit Mobo: Asus P6X58D-E CPU: i7930 LGA 1366 Memory: Corsair XMS3 6GB 1600mhz GPU: Sapphire ATI Radeon HD5850 crossfired PSU: Corsair TX 750TX Case: Antec 900 HDD: WD Caviar Black 1TB Case fan (intake): Thermal Take Smart X 2 (set on med. setting) CPU cooler: Cooler Master Hyper N520 (stk TP) ODD: Phillpes x 22 (from previous computer More about : system bottlenecked good build banthracis May 26, 2010 3:29:11 PM Looks fine. I'd have used a spinpoint F3 instead of the WD HD, a Hyper 212 Plus HSF, some scythe fans instead, and used G SKill Pi RAM instead though. Poisoner May 26, 2010 3:59:28 PM Is what bottle necked?

Is there a test i can do? banthracis May 26, 2010 4:29:15 PM I think it's more of are you asking about gaming or encoding, rendering? etc. For gaming, you're probably GPU limited, depending on resolution. In fact, you'll have to go to quadfire or triple SLI to get close to a CPU bottleneck in gaming at high res and eye candy on. For other stuff, depends. MrHamm May 26, 2010 4:35:03 PM For Gaming -thats all I use this system for. I play res at 1900x1200 on 24inch AcerG24 monitor. Is there a test i can do? knotes May 26, 2010 4:49:51 PM im sure that the cpu is not a bottleneck for the two 5850 Best solution banthracis May 26, 2010 5:11:08 PM Share You can't really test for a bottleneck outside swapping in better parts and seeing how performance changes. But like we've said, for gaming, you're at a GPU bottleneck. Poisoner May 26, 2010 5:53:15 PM Depending on your clock speed, I don't think the X58 Core I7s 'bottleneck' anything.
