Any point taking a 580 for a spin on a Athlon x2 4200 CPU?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Just curious how bad the bottleneck will be since I cant build my new rig without a CPU and it wont be arriving until at least Monday.

My new board, video card and ram are in the sig and they are just sitting there for over a week waiting for the damn CPU, damn you amazon frown.gif

well first problem is it wont fit
second problem is its intel board amd chip
and third problem is if you did put a 580 with an athlon x2 you might as well through a bucket of water at it lol your looking at performace of a like a 520 XD

I would def recommend trying it to see the bottleneck first hand.
You can guess how bottlenecked my sig was running a passive 4550.

I have a 4850 paired with an Athlon 64 3200, the bottleneck doesn't even begin to describe it.

Just opened the case and the dust bunnies attacked me, putting the new shinny card in the thing would be hilarious but it doesn't fit me ol cheapo case frown.gif

Too lazy to rip the whole thing out.
Guess its back to waiting...
