I was wondering if you guys think my motherboard is bottle necking my graphics card or anything else. I recently built this computer in May. The GPU Mobo bottleneck is what I am most worried about.

GPU: Evga Gtx 570 SC http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD3-B3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
CPU: i7 2600k
PSU: OCZ Modstream Pro 700w
RAM: 8 gigs kingston nothing special
SSD: Intel x25 80gig, I do realize that I need a z68 to unlock the full potential of this
HDD: Segate 1tb

Let me know if you guys need any more information and sorry if the post is in the wrong area of the forum.

Thanks

Best solution

i would save up for a better mobo, it only has 1 pci 2.0 x16 which limits future expansion.Youve already gone all out on a CPU, and GPU, get the best out of em with a quality mobo. The peace of mind, quality, and features of a better board is worth the wait. Get yourself sometype of an ASUS, MSI, or ASrOCK p67.

Thanks, i think i will save up for a better one because I do plan on doing sli in the future, i think i will wait till the holiday season and get a good deal. The i7 was given to me as a gift. I was pretty happy.
