That's ONLY for the GTX 4602WIN and 5602WIN because they didn't have PLX chips built onto them. All OTHER Dual GPU Cards will work on ANY board no matter what.

i think you need an overclock really close to 4ghz for most game. but other games that use cpu/gpu
50/50 then it will be bottle neck.but games that use 20/80 or 30/70 will be fine.
your cpu in this bench mark is as powerful as a i3 stock . (A low i5 and i3 will bottle neck the 590) so i assume it at 4ghz will match an i5 powerful enough to not bottle neck it or very minimal
