Will my processor bottleneck these graphics cards? Tags: Graphics Cards Bottleneck Processors Graphics Last response: August 13, 2010 12:55 PM in Graphics & Displays Share mrsav25 August 13, 2010 12:44:09 PM Hi all I am running (in a few days) an AMD X2 5000+ cpu which I hope to overclock to around the 3Ghz mark. So - A dual core 3Ghz processor with 667 ram, and currently a 9600GT overclocked. I'm thinking of gettign a GTS 250, or maybe even a HD 5770. Will my system bottleneck a 5770? If so, is it even worth going for the GTS 250? Everything runs nice now, I just want to be able to use higher settings on games like GTA4 etc More about : processor bottleneck graphics cards | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Griffolion Graphics card Authority August 13, 2010 12:53:34 PM The 5770 should be ok, so long as your resolution isn't too high, maybe 1024. | Report abuse raiyus13 August 13, 2010 12:55:21 PM Try to overclock the cpu more, like something around 4Ghz and try to play at high resolutions(this will put down a bit of stress from the cpu). buy the HD 5770 ,its a very good card and will help you to play GTA 4(i won't reccomend the GTS 250 over a HD5770).
