will this new setup work?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
im thinking about upgrading my video card to the 560 Maximum edition. my setup right now is the one in my signature. i read a few threads about my cpu being a threat for bottle necking. i would assume the same for my memory.

memory possibly. but depending on the OC you have on the q6600, i'd say you should be ok. the 6600 is still a beast

You will be fine - Q6600 can keep up with the best of them out there for single cards - problem is when you start running multiple cards (even then they do ok, ran sli 470's with a Q6600 and it did fine )

Unless you're biased towards nVidia, I'd recommend a 1GB 6950 over a 560 Ti personally. Much better bang for your buck.

Agreed. I'm biased towards Nvidia myself, but I do have to admit that this is most certainly true.
