Solved Edit: Will x2 255 bottleneck 5770? Tags: Homebuilt GPUs Bottleneck Systems Last response: July 22, 2011 12:27 AM in Systems Share weinerleak July 21, 2011 6:48:07 AM Hi, If I get an x2 255 will it bottleneck my Radeon 5770? And the Asus M4N68T-M V2, is it a suitable motherboard to go along with the x2 255? I read that I shouldn't choose a mobo with an onboard GPU. This one actually has an o/b GPU.. =x [Hi mods: Edited, please help me move this question to GPU thread if you wish.] More about : edit 255 bottleneck 5770 foverosiv a b B Homebuilt system July 21, 2011 6:54:15 AM buy a PS3 if you really want decent gaming cheap. also, telling us the budget you can work with would be also a big help . m 0 l weinerleak July 21, 2011 7:02:30 AM Hmm yeah I was thinking of reducing the $500 build even further. I think 5770 would be good enough for me. I expect just to play games at 1280*1024 on med-settings. m 0 l Related resources AMD Athlon X2 II 255 bottleneck with a GTX750? - Forum Will Athlon II x2 255 Bottleneck new GPU ? - Forum AMD Athlon II X2 255 Bottleneck? - Forum Will an athlon x2 265 bottleneck a HD 5770 - Forum Will Ath II X3 bottleneck X2 5770? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Give it a try. Yeah, thanks anyway my local stores don't carry the particular processor and mobo you suggested.
