What is bottlenecking my computer

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
All my parts are listed down below, I would like to know what is bottlenecking my comp, now I put this in the amd cpu section because i suspect it is my cpu, and if it is can someone tell me what's the difference between overclocking an amd cpu and intel, specifically if you can on my motherboard and cpu because i am not familiar with either very well.

At 3.2 I would imagine that is some bottle neck there, can you get some overclock on that maybe?

Well I wasn't looking for new parts, I was looking for overclocking, now that you guys have established that can someone tell me what's the difference between overclocking amd vs intel, also how well does my cpu and mobo overclock, they are cheap, and new, I bought them for about 100 to replace my old motherboard which fried after I tried overclocking on it, but that was kind of expected because it was 7 years old.

there is no bottleneck if you use your pc for gaming on 1680x1050 / 1920x1080 / 1920x1200... if you use it on low resolutions you need at least 3.5ghz cpu
