so i just upgraded my psu and graphics card. my psu is now 500w and i have a 2gb evga gtx 550 ti. im getting pretty good performance in games, but not quite as good as other people that have the same card say. my cpu is amd phenom x4 9750 2.4 ghZ and my ram is some cheap ddr2 2gb (i have 2 of them) ram. i was just wondering if my cpu and ram are bottlenecking my graphics card.
I would highly suggest upgrading to the AMD phenom 960T as of this time because it's based off the thuban die meaning it can unlock to a 6 core (37% chance of doing so and 75% chance of unlocking to 5 core) and it also overclocks very well.
and is there a big difference between ASUS M5A99X EVO AMD 990X AM3+ Motherboard - ATX, Socket AM3+, AMD 990X Chipset, 2133MHz DDR3 (O.C.), SATA 6.0 Gb/s, RAID, 8-CH Audio, Gigabit LAN, USB 3.0, CrossFireX/SLI Ready and MSI 970A-G45 9 Series AM3+ Motherboard - ATX, Socket AM3+, AMD 970 Chipset, 2133MHz DDR3 (O.C.), SATA 6.0 Gb/s, RAID, 8-CH Audio, Gigabit LAN, SuperSpeed USB 3.0, CrossFireX Ready?
