Possible Bottleneck

Just bought a pc off newegg it is not preforming how I am pretty sure it should and I think there might be a possible bottleneck somewhere here are my specs if someone could look over these and give me some feedback as to where to look or what needs changed I would really appreciate it. There might be nothing wrong and I am expecting more then I should be but I do not know.

CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor

More about possible bottleneck
  1. What is slow? The 6 core Thubans are not great gaming processors and the 460 is an SE not a "real" GTX460 so I could see where that could slow you down in games.
  2. I understand that it just seems like the specs in here call for more then what I am getting it is really nothing seriously just minor lag issues in certain games that there should be none so I just wanted to double check to see I i missed something in my spec layout possibly cause a unknown bottleneck
  3. The 460SE is likely your problem then. What resolution you play at? If its below 1920 x 1080 the SE is probably enough but for true HD resolutions the GTX460 1GB is about as low as I would go.( I have one )
  4. thanks for the help I will try lower the res but it helps having someone elses option on the subject so thanks
  5. Lag could be your connection. But your PC isn't built for gaming at highest settings. It'll match roughly a Radeon 5770 or so.
