Hi, I am currently using a i5 3570k chip with a xfx 7870 crossfire (2GB) and I am w8ing for my next 7870 card to arrive, but as I've been reading a few posts online on different forums I would like to know whether or not there would be a bottleneck effect with both these cards.
and please do correct me if I'm wron but isnt bottleneck basically a phenomenon that occurs if the processor aren't able to read enough info to the gfx card, hence the gfx card wont be used to its full potential?!?
This video will answer ANY question you got about bottleneckshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGdo75gasaQ
The i5-3570k is actually just about the best you can get for your money when gaming. It won't bottleneck.
