phenom 9950

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok so should i get a 9950 and OC it cuz the 9600 is bottlenecking my hd4870 or should i get a Gigabyte EP45 UD3P and take my old q6600 from my gateway pc and overclock that. Which do you guys think would be the best choice?

I don't know anything about that mobo, but if it's the one that came in your prebuilt Gateway, it might not have great overclocking features.

honestly i think the q66 will clock higher, but the cpu that came in that gateway could have been a crappy batch with a bad vid. My opinion is to get a 9950, i love mine, (yes im somewhat a fanboy) either one overclocked with get rid of your bottleneck :]

9600's bottleneck 4870's? Whoah. I ought to consider throwing for the 9850 on my new build, then.

and how, exactly, does one determine that one component is bottlenecking the other? benchmark behavior?
