So I've been getting alot of people I know saying that I might bottle neck when I play games with my new GTX 550Ti. My question is will I playing Crysis 2 on high and such and/or main-steam FPS games like it.
Can your board unlock cpu cores? Does it have acc?
You might be able to "upgrade" your cpu by simply unlocking a cpu core or two and then testing it with some benchmarks to make sure the unlocked core/cores are stable.
Most phenomII x2's unlocked to a tri-core, and a few to a quad core, usually you need to bump the voltage up a bit and have a good cooler.
