  1. Im not really sure if there is a precise way, buy if you told us what your processor and GPU are, and their clocks, we could probably tell you. You can try a mild OC on the CPU, check performance, then a mild OC on the GPU, and that might give you some indication.
  2. my processor is core 2 duo e7300@2.66ghz and gpu is hd 7750 ddr5 with 800 MHz GPU Clock Speed.are they bottlenecking?, as i am getting very poor performance when playing games
  3. It can be down to more than just CPU or GPU. The CPU isn't the most up to date, but shouldn't struggle too much. If you wouldn't mind going into more depth about your system it would help. Also you could go about updating your drivers.
  4. easy way to tell if your cpu is bottlenecking is to open task manager, run your program, then alt tab back to the task manager. if the cpu was running at 100 percent it is bottlenecking

    will my cpu or card bottleneck?
  6. It shouldn't. What games at what settings are you trying to play?
  7. bottlenecking is relative and depends on the program, the hardware and the graphical settings. the lower the graphics/resolution the higher the chance of the cpu bottlenecking. raise the graphics etc. its not really something someone can just say yes or no to. like i said, run task manager and SEE if your cpu is bottlenecking
  8. thanks.i will check it and report back
  9. Best answer
    hit ctrl alt delete to open task manager. just leave task manager running while you play your game, hit alt tab to leave the game and look at task manager. it has a black and green graph showing you your cpu usage. if it was at 100 percent then your cpu is a bottleneck
  10. thanks a lot,,i will check it as soon as i get my graphic card back.i have send it to the dealer to check it for any fault.will report back soon
  11. the dealer said that my hd 7750 is fine but he agreed to replace with another card .so i bought ASUS gtx 550 ti DirectCU.i found that this card is much better than hd 7750.and it is performing very well with my old pc.so,the problem of bottlenecking wasnt there.i am happy with gtx 550 ti card.i tested bottlenecking with 550 ti and foung no problem.but i still dont know ,what was wrong with hd 7750.thanks for helping me.
