Closed 560 GTX Problem Tags: Graphics Cards Gtx Bottleneck Graphics Last response: October 22, 2011 6:54 PM in Graphics & Displays Share genesis9 October 22, 2011 4:17:27 PM I recently just purchased a 560 GTX (upgrading from a 9800GT) and I have noticed that I am getting the exact same performance as I did with the 9800GT. Same FPS and everything. My computer specs are: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit AMD Phenom 9100e Quad-Core 1.80GHz 8GB DDR2 RAM 560 GTX 1440x900 Resolution Is my CPU bottlenecking me? I mean, I expected a little of a bottleneck but not to the degree of it running the exact same as it was with my 9800GT.

An AMD Phenom at 1.8 GHz and a resolution of 1440x900 does not push the graphics cards enough to make a difference, apparently.
