dual-core e5700 bottleneck hd 7790?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hi.
I wanted to ask as there would bottleneck between my dear pentium dual-core E5700 3.0ghz stock with a sapphire dual-x oc hd 7790 .
at what frequency would have to put the cpu for no neck?
info:
-asrock g41m-vs3 r2.0
-Value Kinstone-1333 4x2GB
-hyper 212 plus
-game to 1680x1050 or sometimes in a 32 "
500w e80-aerocool
thank you very much! thumb.gif

yes, you will be seeing some limitation from that pentium; more so at lower in game settings than higher. it would benefit to overclock as much as you can. i had a E5300 a few years ago and was able to get up to ~3.8Ghz just by upping the FSB to 265 and a small bump in the vcore ( i think). getting as close to 4Ghz will help - not sure how well you would be able to do that with a G41 chipset but it might not be hard.

i will guess that you're losing ~20% of the performance of an ivy bridge pentium while gaming. getting a 30% overclock on that will cut that in half. its not that bad, you really are not far from the gpu being the limitation.

thanks for your answer smile.gif
and a 7770 vapor-x also think that there would be way too bottleneck? and finally the g41 chipset is good for oc?

what games are you playing?

i do not want to suggest to get a lower card and have reduced frame rate while gaming. if you play online MMO that puts a load on the cpu then maybe a 770 is more balence but if you play single player Call Of Duty then the 7790 is better because the GPU will have more of the load.

the G41 motherboard is ok to overclock, a P45 would get higher but i think you ought to get at least a 3.8Ghz without too much of a problem. there are lots of good guide to help.

game prototype 2 dmc 5, tomb raider, Dirt 3, gta iv, far cry 3, crysis 3, Sleeping Dogs, battlefield 3, cod mw3 and bioshock infinite.
clarified that not even buy any gpu.
I do not know what to buy between the 7770 vapor-x and I mentioned in the thread.
there are only 20 dollars difference.
which would you choose?

wow. that is pretty ambitious to be playing with your rig. you will definitely be better off with the 7790.

but before you jump off on that, what would it be for you to look at getting a phenom II x4 965 and an inexpensive socket AM3+ board?

edit: because it really won't be the 7790 but the games that will put a hurting on your cpu, if that makes sense.

but is that the gpu's would have a few months and then upgrade it to haswell.
