Yes they will be BUT you can reduce that bottleneck by cranking all the settings as high as they go. Also getting a higher res monitor will help as well depending what your running now (guessing 1920x1080?) but with that you will have to be careful with the limitation of 1gb Vram.

the 955 at 4.0 is quite capable of handling those two cards. i would check the 955 o/c thread and see if you are o/c it to it's full potential. i've seen 3.8s stronger than 4.0s before on the same chip.

it could also be the drivers. what version are you running? 10.12a?

Forget the benchmarks and enjoy your rig.

Keep in mind that benchmarks =/= real world performance.

Also PROTIP: Alt + tab and set the game to "high proirity" for the CPU.

I doubled my frames on CoP doing that and while it does lag *SOME* with the weird freeze everyone seems to get.. it happens almost none now.

Don't worry about FPS too much as long as your staying over 60.. and with a very similar rig to yours i never go under 60 hardly, WITHOUT the 4 ghz oc...

STALKER, Metro, and everything else stays insanely high fps.. Although I get in some cases lower "average" frames than the review websites.. its because, the review sites use crappy benchmarking software instead of really playing the game..
