Phenom II 955 Bottleneck?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
If I were to get another Sapphire 6850, would my CPU bottleneck it? Even if I got it up to 4.0Ghz?

I'll assume 1080p 60HZ Vsynch-on. For most games, no. I did notice that some newer games prefer 6 cores, but it won't make too much of a difference. The important thing is overclocking Core/Northbridge frequencies along with descent ram frequency/timing. It should be a rather balanced build and allow you to have maximum detail settings with mostly 60FPS. Some less optimized console ports will take more noticeable FPS dips than compared to Sandy Bridge, but overall you will be seeing quite a performance improvement.

I run 1080p 60Hz, Vsync off.

No, there wouldn't be any substantial bottleneck mate. Also remember, the higher the resolution, the more GPU-intensive a game is

Why is your text all green? I mean, I know how to make text green, just what is the significance of this?

Edit: I would mostly agree with the other posts.

I agree, makes it the post irritating to read and it gives me a headache.
