6970Trifire i930 bottlenecking? and psu

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey guys got some questions

Would 4,3 ghz (i7 930)be enough to run 6970 Trifire+gtx 260 "physx" without bottlenecking?

And how many watts/amp would you recommend on the psu 12v rail, pref with lots of OC room for all the components.
sorry for bad spellings/grammar

Thanks

Omg 'bottleneck' is right up there with fail as the most annoying things about the internet.

you could put the three 6970 on the 1000w and the rest of the cpu on the 850

If you plan on gaming with that, I doubt you'll see any bottleneck. I'm sure there will be one, even if you were running a 980x. But the 930 will be able to pump out amazing performance with those cards.

You shouldn't have any problem running that setup between the two power supplies either.

AMD cards are very power efficient, a 1000W power supply would be fine.

The third card performance is dependent upon the game and drivers.
Some games take advantage of it and others don't. I would start with two cards and add a third if necessary.
The processor is not the bottleneck.

You would only bottleneck if you were running an X6.
