Hello every one , I'm building a new computer (gaming rig) and I wanted to know if a Intel core 2 quad Q9300 2.5ghz will really bottleneck a EVGA GTX 460 SE 1gb gddr5. I will also buy a MOBO gigabyte P45T-ES3G with 4gb-8gb ram and a Neo Eco 520c PSU. Thanks alot
the core 2 is an old CPU, if you are building a new computer, I would recommend you getting the 2nd gen i3/i5 or the AMD Phenom line. If you can wait, you can even go for the upcoming Ivy bridge CPUs from Intel or cheaper FX CPU's from AMD
No I already own a Q9300, but can you tell me if its gonna B-neck a GTX 560 non-ti gigabyte. Yes a GTX 560. If it does, will it be like REALLY b-necked, like I couldn't get a playable frame rate in any game or would it be barely noticible. I want to play MW3 BF3 Diablo3 (yeh that alot of 3s) Skyrim etc maybe not maxed out but on pretty high res. on my 42'' monitor (HDTV) 720p Samsung.
Awsome, well I'll order it soon! By the way, if my tv is called a 720p screen, does it means that if I plug it with an HDMI cable, the max res I'm gonna get is 1280×720 (wich is fine for me, I don't mind not having a ginormous resolution)
