I7 950 Bottleneck 660ti 2GB ? ? ? Tags: Graphics Cards Bottleneck Intel i7 Graphics Last response: February 6, 2013 12:23 AM in Graphics & Displays Share switch420 January 30, 2013 1:10:35 AM Just wondering if my 660ti will be bottlenecked by my i7 950 I'm building....I also have a GTX570 but figure the 660 is about the same in performance only less power use. What ever card doesnt go with the i7 is going to get paired with a 6100 bulldozer So would rather the better gpu be with the better CPU...being the 950?

Dont ugprade your cpu its a good cpu It wont bottleneck just overclock your i7 to about 3.5 or more and you r fine Tom Burnqest January 30, 2013 1:24:19 AM pff no LOL ! Also you figured wrong as the GTX 660 is faster than the GTX 570 in every game and the GTX 660ti is faster than the GTX 580 in every game. That 660ti will blow the GTX 570 away.
