Whats bottlenecking my rig? - Page 3

post #21 of 22
Thread Starter 
Sorry guys, didn't mean to get back to you so late!

Settlers 7 - (on max detail with AA enabled) around 10 FPS
Starcraft 2 (on max detail with AA enabled) 30+ FPS so no issues there
BFBC2 (on max detail with AA enabled) around 15 FPS
Fallout New Veges (on max detail with AA enabled) 30+ FPS, no issues on that game.
AvP2 (on max detail with AA enabled) 30+ FPS

I have 2x2gb + 2x1gb ram

One of you mentioned it could be the game itself.. Poorly programmed. BFBC2 and Settlers don't seem to be very "smooth" even at lower details so this could be correct.

I know the 295GTX is still a great card, I guess I'd like to know which unit would become the bottleneck(er) when the time comes, the CPU or GPU. Someone suggest to OC the CPU more and benchmark it. I think I will do this seeing as my temps don't exceed 55 degrees on full load so theres a bit more left in her.

Thanks guys - love this site, very helpful oc'ers!

Try Overclocking the CPU like i said before. If you see an increase in fps, you know the GPU was bottlenecked. But your CPU being the culprit is unlikely. It looks like settings are being forced within your nvidia control panel. Revery back to total stock defult settings! every setting at stock! Also, is SLI enabled? I hear the GTX295 is a dual card. hhmmm?

remember to rep helpful members

Edit: Did you check your amps on that PSU yet?
