Will i bottleneck w/ a 7950GT? - Page 3

post #21 of 24
Yes your system is bottlenecking now and Will with future cards. Unfotunately GPU'S at the moment are very CPU dependant. If you have an Out of date CPU it can sometimes really hold you back...I noticed this especially since my Upgrade.

I also think it's a rumour that you need to reinstall when changing mobos. I've never been "verifying" my XP installation.
No its not a Rumour. Sometimes you can get some serious driver and registry conflicts resulting in Instability and OR BSOD. However a repair Install can Remedy these issues.

Yeah, you don't need to reinstall your OS from installing a new mobo. The OS is contained on the Hard drive only. Your OS will simply recognize that there is a new mobo. You can technically just take your harddrive from your system and place it in an entriely different system and just reinstall all the new drivers and you still wouldn't need to reinstall the OS.

You will however need to check the manual to make sure all the right jumpers are set and install the new drivers for your new mobo, but that's really nothing to worry about. I say go for the new mobo homie.

I've never seen that. Looks like you've taught me something new!

Not always Correct. When A new Motherboard is installed the DMI Pool data isnt configured for the OS currently on that OS. The DMI pool data Carries new hardware and Motherboard info to the OS for recogntition...Sometimes with a New Mobo it cant fully verify the DMI pool data...Thats when you get the message '' No os found'' Or ''Please Insert system disk''...Thus you may need a full reinstall.
