GeForce GTX 660 in dual SLI bottleneck with intel i5 3 1 ghz Tags: Gtx Bottleneck SLI Intel i5 Components Last response: October 30, 2012 2:02 AM in Components Share tempes156 October 29, 2012 9:18:38 PM Hello, I just ordered parts to build a my first gaming rig, i'm in no way...hell...I just don't freaking know crap about this stuff. I bought 2 EVGA GTX 660s to run in SLI. I bought an ivy bridge i5 3.1ghz Friend of mine commented he's worried it will bottleneck (whatever that is, but sounds bad) due to the cpu. Ideas, suggestions? More about : geforce gtx 660 dual sli bottleneck intel ghz rolli59 October 29, 2012 10:26:15 PM It will work fine! Although a faster I5 (3570K) that you could overclock would have been better. amuffin October 29, 2012 10:33:27 PM No. Related resources GeForce GTX 660 in dual SLI bottleneck with intel i5 3 1 ghz - Forum Pentium G2120 3.1GHz bottleneck the GTX 660 ? - Forum Will amd fx 6300 bottleneck geforce gtx 660 (non ti)? - Forum Dual SLI GTX 275 vs GTX 660 - Forum GTX 660 with i 3 or i5 - Forum Can't find your answer ?
