Also known as I am wondering if my other components would bottleneck SLIed GTX 570s
CPU: i7 2600
PSU: Antec EarthWatts 750w
Motherboard: ASRock P67 Extreme4
HDD: 1TB WD Blue

Just wondering if I am going to notice any bottlenecking if I got another EVGA 570...

Id say you would see hardly any bottle necking at stock, the SB chips are ridiculously fast and faster per clock then previous gens, but obviously a 4.0 ghz oc is easy achieve so go for it

I'm pretty sure I can't OC my 2600, I really should have gotten a K series...

oh yeah you need a k series, I didnt realize that but if there is a bottleneck it should only be a small amount that processor is still blazing fast at stock, basically when a review site says 570 sli get 120 fps in a given game you may only get 115fps but there is no reason not to add a second gtx 570 with that setup, you will have amazing performance

but honestly I doubt there will be much of a bottleneck and all that means is that both your gpus are not playing at 100% of there potential, so really you shouldnt worry about it.

Thanks for all the help, although I might consider downgrading to a 2500k as my video encoding has been diminishing lately to achieve better performance in games

You don't need a K series to overclock.
