Solved Possible bottleneck? Tags: CPUs Bottleneck AMD HD Phenom Product Last response: February 15, 2013 12:25 AM in CPUs Share ck0223 February 4, 2013 10:55:15 PM I'm thinking about purchasing a Radoen HD 7950 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I'm currently running on an AMD Phenom X4 955 @ 3.2ghz on this board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I have 8 gigs of system ram. Will that create a bottleneck? Thanks in advance!

There's the 7870 xt which is almost as good as the 7950 : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... But it comes with a different game(tomb raider), if you want crysis 3 get the 7950. Share ck0223 February 4, 2013 11:19:37 PM Thanks for the quick reply. Drat I have to buy another board. m 0 l Related resources Pc configuration and possible bottleneck? - Forum Possible CPU Bottleneck? - Forum Crossfire and possible CPU bottleneck? - Forum need info about possible bottleneck - Forum Possible Bottleneck Issue? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

It supports the 1090T and 1100T but it's hard to find those cpus and they're expensive, not worth it. m 0 l Rusty1983 February 5, 2013 5:33:14 PM Ah yeah, fair enough, forgot how hard it was to get these chips these days without paying through the nose. Ack, looks like a full upgrade is in order I'm afraid m 0 l ck0223 February 15, 2013 12:25:52 AM Best answer selected by Ck0223. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
