Hey all, quick question for suggestions. Do you all think my Core i5-2310 will bottleneck GTX660s in SLI? Been thinking of doing an upgrade, but I'm not sure if it's still worth spending money on a set up that won't allow me to upgrade to Haswell. I can't spend much money at all on a PC since I'm a student. Basically my options at this moment are to either: get a new MB and another gtx660, for an SLI set up with my current CPU - or - get a new MB and get an i5-4430.

Issue with option one for me is that I won't be able to upgrade to a Haswell CPU with this set-up without buying yet another MB, on the other hand, I can still upgrade to an i5-3570k with this set-up (just not sure how long the Ivy Bridge will be relevant for)

The issue with option two is, no SLI set-up, which is ideally what I want, but I don't want to run the risk of bottlenecking an SLI set-up, that'd be a waste of money for now.

Any suggestions on this would really help me weigh the options better, see which one is more logical to go with. Thanks guys!

Thought I would throw this in there to help with what malmental said


had this same issue and didn't find out till I actually got it in my system and ran some tests. Like you were saying going 3570k would be the best bet for you. Get those sweet physics scores thumb.gif
I'm an AM3+ guy but you cant go wrong with the 3570k.

Thanks! That article helped me make a definite choice, I've already decided on the following upgrades for now: MSI Z77A-GD65 + a new TwinFrozr II GTX660, and go for a 3570k/3970k towards the end of the year. Thanks for helping with suggestions!
