GTX 460 bottleneck?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. My E8400 is slightly bottlenecking my 8800GTX SLi setup, 10-15%.

Waiting on the adapter, but I'm puitting a Xeon 5460 in my system and I have 2 GTX 460s laying around.

With my cooling, I got the E8400 to 4.3ghz stable on air - you think after OC on the Xeon, I will bottleneck the GTX460 SLI?

At 1080p the bottleneck will be reduced but the cpu itself is bottleneck in games for being dual core
