Bottleneck?

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)

  1. 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.
  2. an x6 should still do pretty well but itll eventually be your bottleneck
  3. That's what i thought. Thank you for the answers :-)
  4. phenom ii x4 and x6 processors were awesome, amd doesnt make processors like they used to
