Bottleneck? Tags: Homebuilt Bottleneck Systems Last response: December 19, 2012 10:46 AM in Systems Share TheMesserschmidt1 December 19, 2012 7:41:50 AM Hello there, For future gaming, I'd like to know what will most likely be my bottleneck in this system: Nothing is Overclocked! CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Videocard: Gigabyte GVR787OC-2GD 2GB Crossfired RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2 x 4 GB Motherboard: GA-990XA-UD3 OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (My Hard Drive is being upgraded within the next month to "Corsair Force Series 3 Solid State Disk 180 GB", so that should not be a problem for my favorite games installed on this SSD) More about : bottleneck | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Reply to TheMesserschmidt1 Register or log in to remove manofchalk Homebuilt system Master December 19, 2012 8:58:02 AM For 1080p 60Hz gaming, think the CPU will bottleneck before the GPU. Though you have a fairly easy upgrade path on that board, something like an 8350 or equivalant Steamroller CPU will do. | Report abuse Reply to manofchalk vanwazltoff December 19, 2012 10:21:28 AM an x6 should still do pretty well but itll eventually be your bottleneck | Report abuse Reply to vanwazltoff TheMesserschmidt1 December 19, 2012 10:40:17 AM That's what i thought.
