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)

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.

an x6 should still do pretty well but itll eventually be your bottleneck
