hello does any one know if the athlon x3 440 @3.6ghz would be much of a bottleneck to gigabyte gtx 560ti super overclock in sli using a dell sp2309w with a res of 2048 x 1152 and as much AA as the cards will take

YES!!!!! You will have a pretty big bottleneck. A Athlon II X3 440 @ 3.6Ghz would give a little BO to a GTX 560, but two GTX 560s, you will have a huge BO. Don't wast your money man. Do you already have a the Athlon?

Actually, with all AA, and ALL AF, and that res, one GTX 560 would be okay. Balance your system though. Two GTX 560s would BO though.

hi mate thanks for the advice yea iv already got the x3 do ya really think just one 560 would be okey for that res cause i would have to buy a sli mobo as i dont currently have one if i was guna go sli do you think i would be able to play crysis/warhead very high with no aa and get an average of 30fps with one card because that game looks stunning on that dell monitor my mate has one but he also has an i7 930@4ghz and ati 5970 he can play it maxed 8xaa and get about 50-60fps

Yeah, a GTX 560 can run it at 30FPS with that monitor with no AA. Would you like me to suggest an SLi motherboard, a CPU, and two good GTX 560s?

That would be pretty beast. When I did the Win. 7 currency thing, it told me that 700 of UK dollars was $1120 of my type of money, so that should be in budget. GTX 560s SLi, a great motherboard, and a i5 2500k. Also, you could get hd6950s CFX.




thanks alot but i will defiantly consider this in the future but i think i will just get the one 560 and the dell monitor at the moment
and save up for another couple of months and get the motherboard +cpu + second 560 thanks alot for all you help though!

For Crysis that CPU overclocked wouldn't be a bottleneck at that resolution. The GPU will be more of a limiting factor especially if you want to use AA and AF. Most other modern games wouldn't really need more though.

With 700 pounds, you should definitely NOT build with an Athlon II x3. Sell that off on ebay or give it to someone--anything but try to game with it when you want top of the line and can afford it.

At 700 pounds, you can find most the parts for a build on ebuyer.com. Feel free to start a new thread with a budget and your build. Start with this:
