Hey guys!

Quick question.. Bit unaware of the ins and outs of PC hardware these days..

My question is.. I'm planning to get a build.. But need to know if there will be any bottlenecking issues with pairing a Gigabyte GTX 690 and a Intel 3570K Ivy-Bridge in the same rig? I'm planning on overclocking and such. Already have custom CPU cooler sorter etc.

Regards,

690 is like having two 680's i doubt it. I believe you would need at least two those and then we can say your bottlenecking it. Just my opinion though.

No, no bottlenecking there. Some games will do better with the CPU overclocked but this is not the same as a bottleneck.

Yeah I know it's basically equivelant to having two 680s.. I just want to make sure that's all :p
