I doubt it. Mine @ 4.6 gets to 95%+ utilization on both GPUs in games that have good SLI support

Depends entirely on the game, settings, and resolution. 1024 x 768 with no AA and everything set on low? The GTX is going to be bored while the 2500k runs 100%

But at 1920 x 1080 with AA and ultra high settings, the i5 will be at 50% or whatever with the GTX at 99%.

We really need to know the games you're referring to playing, the monitor, and what settings you plan to use.
