I recommend overclocking that chip to an easy 3.0ghz or so if you can. m 0 l Related resources GTX 460 with a Q6700 - Forum Is my gtx 460 768 bottlenecking ? - Forum Will a q6700 bottleneck sli gtx 260s? - Forum Kuma black 7750 dual core, bottlenecking gtx 460?? - Forum Upgrading from gtx 460 to 760.
