Would my GPUs be preforming at their best?

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...

More about would gpus preforming best
  1. Not if your overclocking your cpu to 4ghz.
  2. 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
  3. 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

  6. 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.
  7. 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.
