3 Cores, 4Ghz...will it bottleneck a gtx 560?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Well guys I recently did some more tweaking on my OC and this is what I got stable after 12hr stability test and 12hr folding.

B55 X3 (unlocked 555) @4ghz with CPU-NB @ 2.8Ghz

Now back to the question, will that be enough to feed a 560 or can I step up a bit more, oh I will be gaming at 1920x1080

Yes it will. My Phenom II 720 unlocked to 4 core and overclocked to 3.4ghz bottlenecks it. Now albeit, yours is OC'd further, it's still a less powerful processor.

However, while it will bottleneck it, it's still not a bad setup. I certainly notice an exceptional difference over my old 4870 that i used to have, and it can play BFBC2 as well as WoW absolutely maxed with full AA and AF at 1920x1080.

I think it should be enough to avoid a bottleneck with a single GTX560 at 1920x1080. If you do come across a specific game that does bottleneck your rig I don't think it will be a massive problem.

My x3 720 bottlenecks my 5850 by a lot, so I don't think yours will be able to handle it. There will still be a large improvement though, if you go with a 560.

That's what I say, my 720 bottlenecks my 560 by a fair bit, which is why i think that the 555 would, even at 4ghz.
