"BottleNecks.." -New Build-
Dec 4, 2012, 12:19 AM
Hey guys. I'm wondering if i will get bottle necks on my GPU for the CPU I chose.
Heres the part list:
GPU: GTX 670
CPU: i5 3570k
CPU Cooler: CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO -hoping this is decent for doing a little bit of overclocking
Mobo: ASUS P8Z77-V 1155 socket
RAM: Corsair 8GB DDR3 ram 1600Mhz *1.5V*
PSU: Corsair HX750W 80+ Gold *Modular, PFC*
Chasis: Antec eleven hundred performance case
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200RPM
So yeah, will i get any bottleneck issues with my build?

That's the best gaming CPU out there... it's probably going to last three or four generations of video cards without beginning to bottleneck a single card solution.
The i7 is the SAME thing as the i5, but with hyperthreading, which games don't use... so the i5 is the farthest you could get from a bottleneck.
