First of all, sorry if i posted this in the wrong category.
So my question is, as the title says, wil a phenom II 555 (black edition) bottle a gt440?
I'm planning to buy this Cpu because my old one (Phenom 8600) is bottlenecking my gpu. So does any body know if there will be any bottleneck?
if anything that made the cpu bottleneck the gpu it would of been the 2.3ghz, i ran a phenom x4 9650 @ 2.3 with a 9800gt and i would consider that 9800gt to be better than the 440 or at least similar and it played games great, alot better than the old x2 5000+ that was used before. the x4 only one extra core than ur phenom plus the 9800gt played bf3 at just playble fps around 30 @1080p with some stutter, and ultra on wow lol.
I suppose the better the phenom IIs were that losing a core for higher clock speed would make it better, and could prob be paired with a 7770 as mentioned.
If u ever get a newer board, the X2 550 can be unlocked to four cores but theres a chance they wont work or stay stable.
