The motherboard won't bottleneck the graphics card. What Processor will you be installing on the motherboard?

sorry bottleneck is not he right word. I meant would the fact that it is a cheap motherboard impede with the performance of the graphics card.

The motherboard you've choosen is fine and won't hinder the cards performance, However I think the Processor will be the limiting factor in games that are very CPU intensive like Battlefield bad company 2. Still I think you'll get decent frame rates in almost all games with fairly good in game settings.

It has only 1 pci-e 2.0 buss slot running at x16 there is no chance to bottleneck.

P43 is not powerful enough to handle high traffic the x48 chipset is mutch faster but hard to find, i suggest for you to go for a P45 or if you can afford P55 mothebords are better.

Eh? OP is only using one card, so he/she only needs one PCI-E lane 2.0 x16, which the motherboard he/she linked too has. A P55 mobo is for 1156 CPU's, not s775 CPU's.

it isn't clear if he is building a new system and what CPU had, i covered all the possibilities X48 is far more better as a chipset, became a standard in the new motherboards under the name x58.

The OP has a s775 CPU, as he/she mentioned previously and made no mention of upgrading.

@OP if you intend to add another GTS450 for SLI then I would recommend Buying a P55 or X58 setup, as your current CPU would hinder the performance of GTS450 SLI and I would not recommend you spend alot of money on old technology (s775)

Yes you are right, he said core 2 duo i can’t believe i missed that, assuming he has ddr2 memory and don't want to spend a lot the only choice that will boost his performance is a x48 motherboard with the card he is talking about and is really hard to find in stock somewhere in a ddr2 combo.

Look for ASUS Rampage or Ga-X48-DQ6 if they have them in stock somewere take it.

I did found a ga-x48-dq6 in a stock house only for 30 euros for a friend of mine i assume if you search deep enough you will make the dream machine reality. I did spend hours and many phone calls to find it here in greece.

I tried to give you the best solution.
