CPU Bottleneck?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I have posted before about my CPU and Graphics card ect. I was wondering if there was a bottleneck between my gpu and cpu. Could my Pentium 4 3.0 (OC at 3.4GhZ) Decrease performance on my 7600gt?

Run AM3 and see if your GFX and CPU scores are near the same, but if one score is alot higher then the other (5,000+ point diff.) then you have a bottleneck

I scored:

GFX:7,659
CPU:5,896

Aquamark score:46,428

That right for my setup?
Only i wondered because i was having trouble on certain games where there is a high ammount of particles, i seem to get major fps drops. e.g explosions, firefights.

How many background programs were running? Also have you optimized your windows by disabling unececary services etc.

Check this out, its part1 with a link to part 2 at the end http://www.overclock.net/faqs/36430-...zer-guide.html.
Also are you using the latest drivers from nvidia? If not I recommend you get them with driver cleaner, and uninstall, then use driver cleaner in safe mode, and install the new drivers. UIf you do have the latest drivers, then try a reinstall the same way mentioned above. Sometimes, and it just happened to me, the drivers installation gets corrupt, and a reinstall fixes this.
