Would bottlenecking be a problem with this build?

I am going to buy a geforce gtx 660 ti graphics card, i am using a amd 245 ii x2 proccessor and i have been told this would cause bottlenecking of my graphics card, if i were to upgrade to the AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor would bottlenecking still be a concern?

  1. With the Phenom II X4 965, you shouldn't worry about *bottlenecking*. It's capable processor and if you wanted to, you can easily overclock it. Hence the "black edition".

    Edit: Make sure you motherboard can have a max TDP of 125 watts in order to support the Phenom 965.

    *heh sorry, put overclocking there instead of bottlenecking, apologies for that mistake :lol:
  2. Yeah the overclocking completely confused me, and i thought i may have misunderstood what bottlenecking was, haha, it's all good :D
    How would one go about figuring out the max tpd of watts of their motherboard? Here is a link to my motherboard if this is of any help at all. http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3534#sp

    It will work just fine with that motherboard.
    * on a side note, I think that's the third time I seen that motherboard in a thread just for today.... Is it really that popular?
  4. They were probably mostly my posts, i posted this 2-3 times checking for different parts, is this the amd 965 proccessor i would want? http://www.amazon.com/AMD-Phenom-3-4Ghz-512KB-4000MHZ/dp/B002SRQ214
  5. Or perhaps this one? http://www.microcenter.com/product/325874/Phenom_II_X4_965_Black_Edition_34GHz_Boxed_Processor these seem to be the only ones i can find.
  6. Hahah :lol:
    You were right about the earlier thread, one was from you...

    Anyways grab the one from Microcenter, its cheaper.
  7. I figured as much, alright will do, just making sure they are the same thing, thanks a bunch for the help! =)
  8. No problem, drop a PM if you need any other help related to this or not, its all good ;)
