Hey,

Do you guys think a Geforce 8800GTX will bottleneck an intel X6800?

nope. As far as i know, the 6800 is overkill for any GPU still.

In that farcry benchmark,

Stock 6800 got 133FPS in 1024x768
Oced 6800 got 149FPS (3.47GHz)

Isnt that a bottleneck?

First we must be aware of the term bottleneck.

A bottleneck is when there is a component that is faster than the rest of the components in a computer system. Therefore this component will be limited by the other limiting factors (the other hardware). This can apply to more than a single component.

With a bottleneck it not quite as simple as expected.
A bottleneck will never "always" be present on a computer system, it totally depends on what you yourself are doing with the computer.

Example:
Intel Pentium 4 1.5GHz Willamette, nVIDIA GeForce 6800GT.

Bottleneck (due to CPU): F.E.A.R, Quake 4, Battlefield 2142.
No Bottleneck: Red Alert 2, Warzone 2100, Quake 3 (Arena).

A 8800GTX will be heavily bottlenecked in recent 3D applications like 3DMark 06 as the processors we currently have in manufacturing are not fast enough to process the data the 8800GTX is processing. Therefore the performance will not be as great. Overclocking will greatly reduce this issue.

Well yeah, but come on. Using an 8800GTX to game at 1024x768; of course the GPU will race ahead.

I can only give the extra advice that getting a faster/OCing your CPU, will always improve your framerate.

Finally, someone who sees the difference.

Everybody, rep + for this guy.
