Will an ION board bottleneck an add-on card like a 9800GT? Tags: Nvidia Gaming Bottleneck Graphics Last response: August 13, 2010 4:47 PM in Graphics & Displays Share finn92 August 12, 2010 11:05:13 PM I'm contemplating on a new rig but I'm a little strapped for cash and I have a 9800GT circa 2008 that will be RMAd soon. I'm wondering if an ION board would bottleneck my 9800GT as I'm just going for moderate gaming here.
