Hello, I'm going to get another MSI Cyclone OC 550ti to sli my system. Just wondering if my CPU will be able to handle it. And yes I will eventually grab a quadcore intel chip. Just wondering if what I have now will bottleneck 2 550ti's. Below is what I currently have.
2120 bottlenecking a 6950 in f1 2010 but not metro 2033. Sli would tax the cpu harder than a single card, how much ... couldn't say.
theres 0 chance of bottlenecking that cpu with that gfx card even with a game like bfbc2 which prefers more than 2 cores... your cpu has hyper threading so it will be able to handle it without a problem... on gta 4 you will have a bottleneck though not because of the hardware but because the game is so badly ported... so stay away from games like it and you should have 0 issues.
So what I'm pretty much getting from your replies are i3-2100 + 2 550ti in sli = no problem.
