Why does my pc bottleneck? Tags: Prebuilt Bottleneck Systems Last response: April 19, 2012 1:01 PM in Systems Share mjwhelan April 19, 2012 7:20:32 AM Hello, I built a new PC in december 2011, it was on a budget but it still should bottle neck so easily. Its components are: i3 2100 XFX 6770 Gskill 8gb 1333 OCZ 500W Foxconn H67 MB 320gb 160gb HDD Windows 7 pro it bottlenecks when Im using google crome itunes youtube what ever else im doing. How can i improve the performance e.g. do i need to upgrade my cpu? or graphics card?

It means something to us that is different than whatever it means to you, I think, and I just want to make sure we are all on the same page. ddan49 April 19, 2012 1:01:37 PM Yeah... I don't think you realize what bottlenecking is. You wouldn't know it was happening. It seems like you have a virus, though. Run a virus scan. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
