I have a GTX570HD DoubleShot from evga and I finally upgraded from an ancient e5300 2.6 dual core to a i5 3550 (should be able to turbo constantly at 3.7 since i got a cooler for it) will my graphics card be bottlenecked?
Any comments on the overall build will be fine as well. I don't think there will be a need to overclock since I should be able to max everything and run at 40+fps with all this correct?
did you buy this stuff already? because the vengeance ram you bought, you payed 9 dollars more for the same performing memory. you could of bought the gskill ripjaws x and save 9 dollars
oh and vengeance ram doesnt fit under any heatsink so you will either get rid of it or get a watercooler from corsair like a h80 or h60
id get a i5 3450 since 200mhz isnt worth 10 dollars
you should see a nice 5-10fps increase after all these upgrades
Probably more than 5-10! remember I'm going from a 2.6 dual core that was low end when i got it in 09 to this (so it will always be at 3.3? is that fast enough then?) and i had 4gbs of ddr2 and im going to 8 of ddr3
