is my motherboard bottlenecking?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
bascially i think my motherboard is bottlenecking my 3870, my fps dropps to as low as 30fps on cod4 from like 125 randomly, and i get these really bad gitters of lag, were it freezes for like a couple of ms, how could i find out if my motherboard or cpu or anythink is bottlenecking my card or if the card just generally can't play cod4 well. thanks guys

hmm i doubt its your cpu, especially with it overclocked, have you got the latest drivers for the card, ect? some people ive heard have problems with the 8.3 driver so if you have that maybe try and go back to 8.2.

yeah, definitely not bottlenecking it would take a heck of a lot to bottleneck a 16x pci-e slot.
