6970 + x4 965

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Would a single 6970 be bottlenecked by a x4 965, if not how much of a performance boost would I see from a 4870? Also does the motherboard affect the performance of a gpu and does anyone know the estimated pricing of the 6990?

What performance increase would I see from a HD 4870 to HD 6970 vs HD 6870?

1.No, no bottleneck
2.Depending on the game, at least 50%
3.No as long as it has PCIe 2.0
4.500$+
5.4870=>6870 at least 15-20%, the 6970 (as said before) at least 50%

cheers
