Having used both an X6 and SB wth crossfire, I'd say you should worry more about what res you're playing at. One 6950 is more than enough for 1080p and unless you plan on going for eyefinity, then either proc is more than enough to handle that res.

Anyways, from experience, AMD chips X6/whatever will bottleneck extreme setups. You'd be fine for a single card, but with BD coming... I'd wait if not for the price drops like you mentioned but to see how much faster BD will be.
I have no doubt that BD will be a very fast chip. Like you said, it has to be lol. Its simply my pricerange that im concerned for.

Ive given it some thought, but i dont think im ready to explore intel right now. Also the phenoms are likely to drop in price very soon due to BD comming.

The 1090t vs 6950 bottleneck will vary depending on game, graphic strain, resolution, etc etc.

In all likelihood, overclock the CPU up to 3.6 or higher, with the NB @ 2.6 or higher, and your CPU bottleneck will be all but gone. Crossfire the 6950, you'll want to be higher (so I gather).

Regardless, you should be aiming for 4ghz on the 1090t, 3ghz on your NB, and as high as the 6950 will go.

There's no such thing as "no bottleneck" - just shifting the balance of power. Think of each component being a limitation on the other - your GPU SHOULD run faster when the CPU can pump more information to it, so from the top-down concept of information pathways in your PC, get the CPU as high as possible, as safe as possible, and then raise everything else up beneath that. There's no "magic number" per se, as it depends on the application and situation.

Sorry I couldn't give you EXACTLY the answer you were looking for, but the knowledge desired is contained within my response.'

**Edit** And yes, the people above are correct, Sandy Bridge would probably be better now, but if the pricing on Thuban's drops further with the release of BD, they'll be a wonderful pathway for the budget minded. An x6 @ 4ghz with its NB @ 3ghz is probably going to handle any game out for the next couple of years just fine. I'm throwing a 1090t in my rig when I can afford it for similar reasons ...
I will likely be playing on 1080p with a cintique 21ux tablet also attached in the future. That will not be used for gaming but photoshoping and such.

I appreciate you adding your exp with SB and pIIx6 I highly doubt i will be playing with eyefinity. and likely just at 1080p. And thats after a monitor upgrade cause right now im only at 900x1440

At 1440x900 you will probably bottleneck at the CPU on a modern high end card like a 6950 in many games, but it won't matter because you'll be bottlenecking at some insane frame rate that causes cancer in lab rats.

willibj was spot on!

i do realise that there will be a bottle neck no matter what clock, but i want to find out what clocks will hold the best balance

+rep for all who added constructive crit
