Hello, i was wondering if that would be a bottle neck, the 840 is oced to 4.0, and was thinking about getting another 6850, or a phenom II x6 instead, with just a 6850. What do you guys think?
I once ran my HD 6950 on a stock (but unlocked) Phenom II X3 720BE & was doing around 25-35fps on Crysis 2 and 2nd highest setting at 5760x1080. I bought another HD 6950 for CF & got 50-60fps so I guess even the stock 4 core 720BE still have a lot more to give. The Phenom II x840 oced to 4.0 should do better (I guess the high OC should compensate for the lack of L3 cache).
