Any Point?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Is there any point to overclocking 8800GTX SLI? I have the QX6700, but was wondering if I would get any better 3dMark Score or if the CPU will bottleneck them anyway so extra power is pointless? THe qx6700 is @ 3.33ghz

nope.

Your CPU drags them down to much for it to make a difference, might make a good benchmark score...

I agree. You are already bottlenecking the card. Overclocking the cpu more will get you better gains.

well , if u play at ultra high resolutions with max AA and filtering , then u might get more fps when overclocking the gpu , as the pressure is more on the gpu than the cpu
