3.7GHz 965 Bottleneck'n SLI 470s?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm waiting for my PSU, SLI bridge, and SLI hack for my motherboard to finish/arrive.

Will I get "bottlenecked" @ 2048x1536 with my 965 @ 3.71 GHz (2400MHz NB freq)?


I currently use one 470, and with everything low (including AA/AF/DBAO off) I get 60 fps constant @ 2048x1536. Fully maxed out (high, not ultra, AA/AF, DBAO) I get 25-35 FPS @ 2048x1536. The graphic difference between the two isn't so terrible, and the gameplay is smooth at low, but it's time to get ready to plug in that 470. I just want to know what to expect, dissapointment in performance? Obviously, I'm hoping for someone with the same setup to chime in.

Thanks a lot, and yes I know my GPU setup is not the best for 2048x1536 or even 1920x1200 or 1080.

EDIT: The game I play is Battlefield 3.

You'll see a pretty decent performance increase even if it turns out that your 965 is a bottleneck

I seriously can not wait!

Waiting on the PSU + SLI bridge to be delivered to my home (thanks to OCN).

I need to go do some research on the SLI hack, I heard there's a few to chose from.
