That proc will easily top 40gflops, nothing to worry about. You don't even need to OC it.

Don't need to oc that processor...your fine...but if u really want to that chip is capable of 4ghz. but not with a "sucks" cpu cooler

U only need to worry about bottle necking if you are running like 3 way SLI

As long as you don't have a Athlon x2 at 2.2ghz, then you're fine
