i think you should wait for the second generation of DX10 cards...and then make you move...because these cards are ready for something that was not completely developed yet....so you have 2 nice cards in SLI wait a little more and then upgrade...make your money worth dude!!

yeah but do you think they are bottlenecking my cpu? and what can i do about that?

i think its the other way around your CPU is bottlenecking your cards.

your opteron has the same performance as an X2 4800+ if i were you i would get a better CPU...that would do the trick trust me you dont want to change your cards rigth now

what can i do about that? oc my cpu a lil more. or get a etter cpu? what would be better than a opty 165 939. mine oc'd at 2.47 right. Something dual core.
post #16 of 18
you have a opteron 165 rigth? thats a very nice dual core with a great overclock ability.
i would get a new board AM2 and a CPU above Athlon 64 X2 4800+

Edit: or go intel and get a 775 board and a E4400 that would do the trick

well i would like to keep the same board for now, until a do a new build. I ran aquamark 3 and my gfx score was 18,956 and cpu score was 10,965. so should i oc my cpu a lil more? or get a better cpu, thats a 939?
post #18 of 18
the best X2 CPU for 939 is X2 4800+ that would perform the same as your Opteron...the only one that was better performance than you opty is the FX-60...but its so little that you might already have passed it with your OC.
try to OC more your CPU.
but beleave me if you planned to overperform thouse cards you realy needed to spend loads of money on 8 serie cards. that would be the same as getting a NEW board and a X2 5000 brisbane ou X2 6000. but if you dont intend to buy a new board and CPU go for the OC. the problem is there not in the cards
