Will these video cards be bottlenecked?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm not intending to upgrade, I'm just curious to know whether my system would bottleneck an AMD Radeon HD 6950 and NVIDA GeForce GTX 560 Ti.
Both of them are currently the most powerful video cards my power supply can handle (I've asked this in the power supply section).
Thanks.

Nah... Core i5 2500 (at stock) is even better than Core i7 980X (at stock) in terms of gaming performance.
I don't think it will be a bottleneck.

Bottleneck issue should not associate with 2500K. Maybe for a low-end dual-core chip.

certainly not, the 2500k is enough even for 2 of each in Xfire/SLI.

Wait, I have the non K version.
So you have to consider no overclocking at all, just the turbo boost.
Updated my system details to make it more clear.

Yes, I am considering non-overclock as well.
That is why I wrote (at stock) in my current post.
Sandy Bridge beats other CPUs when it comes to gaming.
The Turbo Boost is good enough to make extra room.
By the way, isn't the non K version got limited Turbo unlock?
