2.7 ( Maybe 3.0) 3700+ + a 7950gt?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Would a 3700+ at 2.7 and a 7950gt run well together, or should I look lower in the video card quality. Don't want bottlenecking

Any present CPU will bottleneck a 7950 but a 3700 should work great with it. So no worries

No I believe the 3700+ will bottleneck the 7950 gt.
