Reply to djangoringo ryanwyvill1 December 26, 2012 6:56:24 PM I wouldn't think that 955 would bottleneck the 7850 that bad.

Only the upgrade to amd x6 phenom (thuban) 1090t or 1100t(the best ones). It's gonna be hard to find nowadays in the shops and they're both expensive, in my opinion not worth it. Here's the 1100t : http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=57014&vpn=HDE00ZFBGRBO...

You might be able to get the clock higher though Reply to unksol j2j663 December 26, 2012 8:26:36 PM You should have no problem with your 955 and the 7850. What is making you think that you have a bottleneck? Reply to j2j663 schmuckley a b à CPUs October 18, 2013 4:33:29 AM none,1090T,1100T,960T,970T those might be a hair better.
