Ok so, i got Multiple Rig's.. one of then has a core 2 Duo E8600@ 4.5GHZ.

Now with this good of a chip at this clock speed i decided to put in some big time GPU's. i swapped out the 9800GT's in it for 3X GTX 280's on it's 780I board.

It's FPS were the same as my Skulltrial rig 2X QX9775's @ 4.01GHZ. Meaning that the dual core at 4.5GHZ handled 3X high end GPU's as good as 8 core's.

Meaning no bottleneck.

another one of mine has a Q9400 with 3X 9800GTX+'s on a 790I.

and the last one worth mentioning has my Phenom II X4 955 C2 with 2X XOC 4890's with a CHIII
