Make sure you get a GOOD PSU please. Don't get a peice of trash and regret it later on. You can overclock the CPU a little to help. | Report abuse shrkbay Graphics card Authority May 22, 2011 9:10:36 AM You're fine, just make sure you have a good PSU and space for GTX580 | Report abuse geekapproved Graphics card Master May 22, 2011 1:07:01 PM Your probably ok, but there is a simple way to find out if your cpu is a bottleneck. Run a gpu benchmark and record the score. Then overclock your cpu 200mhz and run the benchmark again. If you scored higher on the overclocked run, then you were cpu bottlenecked. | Report abuse MascotX May 24, 2011 4:13:34 PM Thanks for your reply guys. When the turbo boost is on it reaches 3.3 on my cpu when i run cpu-z do you think that would be enough for gtx 580? | Report abuse shrkbay Graphics card Authority May 24, 2011 6:24:38 PM your CPU should be fine, it's powerful enough to handle any card. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>Will Msi Gtx 580 Lightning Bottleneck with my Pc Set up?> Related ressources: ForumMsi N 580GTX Lightning Xtreme Edition for BF3 ForumMSI GTX 580 Lightning (Giving low FPS) ForumWhich is a better Gaming card - MSI Radeon R6970 Lightning vs MSI N 580GTX Lightn ForumSingle Msi Lightning Gtx 580 with mulitple monitors ForumMSI GTX 580 XE mismatched with a AMD Phenom II X4 945?????
