AMD athlon x2 240 bottleneck?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just wounder if the reason i'm getting low scores with the geforce gtx560 is because of the athlon 240, it is over clocked to 3.7ghz tho. Just trying to figure out what is the cause.

Yes. OC to 4Ghz and you'll be ok. It wont be that noticeable at that point. But instead just pop in a 60$ Phenom Quad http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0371961

Please fill out your system info under the User CP -> Add System.

Also, I think that it could be causing a bottleneck. What is the load for the CPU and GPU when you run benchmarks. I'm guessing that's what you mean when you say you get low scores.
