Looking for my bottle neck Tags: Components Last response: June 8, 2011 2:53 AM in Components Share voradork June 7, 2011 5:25:20 PM Hello, everyone! I'd like to offer my computer specs to you: 17-920 DX58so Mobo 3x2gb OCZ ddr3-1600 ATI 5770x2 in crossfire. Corsair 750w PSU WD Black edition 640gb HDD 27" ASUS @ 1080p From my brief description, what could be holding my system back from greatness? I figured with what i have i should be able to run games in the highest possible settings, but this is not the case.

I would wait for the new AMD 7xxx series later this year. m 0 l kajabla June 7, 2011 8:37:52 PM 5770 xfire is very good, but not great. From a little googling, two of those are roughly equal to one 5870. http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/best-graphics-card-game-p... Your system doesn't seem too bottlenecked (roughly even GPU/CPU, I think) but neither is fantastic. m 0 l Related resources Looking at buying a GTX 760, will my cpu bottle neck it? - Forum Need advice on older build - Looking for bottle necks. - Forum Will this Graphics card bottle neck my build - Forum Will i bottle neck - Forum Will this cpu bottle neck the gpu?

Get the answer Emperus June 7, 2011 9:24:49 PM Just like Mosox has pointed out, get a good aftermarket cooler and overclock that processor to somewhere about 3.6 GHz (not much sure here if that Intel board had potent overclocking features). m 0 l etk June 8, 2011 2:53:21 AM Make sure that your drivers are updated as well. 5770's stays cool, so as long as you have decent ventilation, you have enough power headroom to overclock them as well. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
