Hello all, I hope to tap the knowledge on these forums real quick. I am looking to upgrade the weakest part of my computer, my gtx 260. I plan on gettin a 560 non-superclocked version since I am on a bit of a budget and want to make sure that my Phenom II x4 @ 3.8 mhz won't bottleneck the gpu. Thanks in advance for you answers.

No it should be well suited to the 560, if you're worried about a bottleneck then get an after market cooler (if you already havent got one) and over clock it further.

What is your RAM, amount and speed?

Thanks for the quick reply, I do have an aftermarket cooler (coolermaster hyper 212+). As for ram I am currently running 4 gigs of 1600 DDR3 G.Skill Ripjaw memory.

You'll be fine, like i said, if you're worried about your CPU holding you back then get that bad boy up to 4.0 Ghz or above, but i honestly don't believe it will hold you back.

RAM is great, i was just asking for reference sake.

But yeah, the 560 will do you fine. What monitor resolution are you using?

I am using 2 monitors atm, neither of which is very big. One is 1440 x 900 and the other is 1280 x 1024.
