I've just bought my new Gtx 560 ( I can't wait for it to arrive ) I have my E5200 OCed to 3.6 Ghz (Yes, I'm using stock cooler) and I know the GPU will be bottlenecked, but I want to know if it will be a lot. If it is neccesary I could try raising my OC a little more. What do you think??
It's a stretch, but shouldn't be too bad.
Ok thanks. When I have the money I will buy the cooler.
You wont be bottlenecked as long as you have a good overclock and a decent amount of ram. It also depends on what games you play and what resolution you use.
I will play at 1920x1080 if the GPU is able to. So the bottleneck will be less??
no more. your CPU is that weak.
I didn´t undertstand you. It will be a lot of bottleneck or not? And if it is true, lowering the resolution would be better?
Ok, I've read that at higher resolutions the bottleneck would be less But I supose it is like that only in low res like 800x600.. And in very high resolutions, the bottleneck will appear another time. Am I wrong?
Ok. Thanks a lot
You are right, but my mobo has only 2 ram slots. And I have 4Gb because I have taken it from another pc, because I had only 2Gb. These are the problems when you are a very tight budget gamer
i have an firstname.lastname@example.org and can run most games at 1600x1200, with your oc and the gtx 560ti i cant see you having a problem apart from with cpu heavy games like gta4, ARMA2 etc.
Yes, I knew that heavy CPU games won't be perfect. So far, now I will take a HD6870, because the nvidia one was out of stock. But the two are nearly the same performance, so my doubts are now resolved
