CPU Bottleneck?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Last night I was playing Bad Company 2 and monitoring my usage. My GPU was at 100% and my CPU was hitting 100% as well. My understanding was the source of a bottleneck was the component hitting 100% while the other component is not. Does this mean my GPU and CPU are a good match now and if so, is my CPU now going to be a huge bottleneck when I install my GTX 570 Classified SLI tomorrow?

Thanks

You may want to do some benchmarks with one card and then with Sli, compare those results to ones you find online.

Obviously if you don't see a big gain when Sli is enabled then it may be a problem. I don't expect it to be much of a problem but I could be wrong.

I've heard of people having problems like that with BC2 should have been fixed by now though. I doubt your cpu is the bottleneck but, overclocking wouldn't hurt.

I really wouldn't think a 460 768mb could get close to bottlenecking my cpu...
