Looking for any Bottlenecks in my system Tags: Homebuilt Systems Product Last response: September 8, 2011 12:41 AM in Systems Share mlwhiteley September 8, 2011 12:28:45 AM I built my system about 3 months ago and will be using it to play Diablo 3 and a few other upcoming games. I am trying to eliminate any bottlenecks I may have before those games release. Here are my current specs: CPU: AMD Athlon II X3 445 Rana 3.1GHz 3 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Desktop Processor ADX445WFGMBOX Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive I will be adding a SSD later this year most likely. Memory: CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX8GX3M4A1600C9 Motherboard: ASRock M3A770DE AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard Network Card: onboard OS: Windows 7 Ultimate Sound Card: onboard Video Card: EVGA 01G-P3-1373-AR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) Superclocked EE 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card More about : bottlenecks system x Heavy September 8, 2011 12:41:04 AM Your hard drive. Then your onboard sound and network. The vid card is ok. Finally but not last... for a game box, just have that game and windows along with maybe a firewall or router and some kind of anti virus and a clean external backup. I suspect you don't want the pain of buying SSD's now. But believe me when I say a SSD in 6.0 or PCIe slot is way better than any spinning hard drive. However I still use a stack of old 7200 rpm's from my parts box in several machines to hold music, video and data that does not require speed. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
