Bottleneck'd

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I was just wondering. If I was to buy an Inno3D 7600GT, what processor would balance out nicely with it. Any and all suggestions welcome, but cheap is best.

AMD: 3700+ or 3800X2
Intel: 631 or 820
PS: The 631 can get to 5GHz on good air cooling.
If you want Core 2, go for E6300 or E6400. <-- The best, but most expensive.

Bottlenecking wont be a prob.
I like the 3700 sandy personally for gaming, but would go x2 3800 for multi tasking (which I cant do anyway!).
Whats the matter with your FX60 X2?

Okay, I'm being lazy today.

What motherboard would fit a system with a 3700+ sandy, 7600GT (PCI-E), 1GB DDR400 ram, and SATA/IDE Hard Drives.

Pretty much any socket 939 board. The DFI Lanparty series is good. So is the ASUS A8N line though.

It's not the fact that my FX-60 isn't good enough, it's the fact that I wouldn't use this monster for overclocking. EVER.
