Bottleneck.. maybe?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Alright..
so you can see my pc specs in the sig.

I'm thinking of buying a new video card. I've been in the chat and some people were saying that I'm gonna bottleneck alot..
Back than i was thinkin of getting the 8800 GT, but now for almost the same price I can get the 9800GTX.

Will my PC bottle neck much ?

Ive looked around and I could get new mobo, ram, cpu.. for what 230-250.. OCZ Plat, and 5000+ BE.

but my main question is if I will bottle neck.

youll be ok with that , id lose the 2800 ram tho just run the 3200 at 1T --3GB of ram like that will hold you way back

Nick, sorry I can vaguely remember your previous psots about your overclock. Is your Opteron 180 OC'ed at all?

Good luck

If you get bottleneck, oc the cpu a little bit (if you can)

I recently got a crazy bottleneck, i had my cpu at stock and got a new 8800gts 512 and overclocked it.

Tested 3dmark06, first 5 seconds was about 65 frames per second.
Overclocked the cpu to 3,5 ghz (stock 2,4), tested 3dmark and got about 100 fps at the same spot, almost double fps!

Bottleneck can be crazy
