Stupid bottlenecking question.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I feel like this is a stupid question, but I am currently running a PII x6 1090t, stock for the moment. So, at 3.2 GHz on six real cores, am I bottlenecking my GTX 670 at 1.3 GHz? Could I be faster with different RAM? DDR3 1600, 8 GB.

I know Intel has super fancy quad memory channels, PCI 3.0, etc etc.

I am looking to SLI super soon, and was hoping to not need to upgrade my ram or processor. Any help would be appreciated.

Maybe a new motherboard that can handle overclocking better?

Phenom II x6 1090t @3.2 GHz (3.8 max on air)
DDR3-1600 8GB
GTX670 @ 1.3Ghz
No real motherboard overclocking, in terms of bus speeds.

The 1090T should be able to handle a single 670 just fine. SLI? There will definitely be a bottleneck. In that case, OC the crap out of the chip biggrin.gif

Ah, that's not what I was hoping to hear....
So, I go the H100 route and hit 4.0Ghz?
Would that be enough to keep things smooth until I inherit a fortune to go with Intel?

Even at 4GHZ you might get a little bit of bottlenecking but nothing so significant as to lose sleep over.
