What Nvidia Video card will bottleneck a Phenom II X4 840? - Page 8

post #71 of 134
I'm not ashamed

Understood, and yes the 560 is faster than the 460, it has more cuda cores and overclocks higher.

And 560Ti at 1GHz would utterly beat 460 at 900MHz, no? I understand you're trying to save money for the guy but he stated he wanted the most powerful card he could get and everything below 570, maybe even 580, is good. It all depends on the guys budget, which we haven't heard yet. If he has the money saved up and it is enough for a 560Ti I would definately go with it. But if this isn't the case then I would suggest 460 surely.

He wanted the most powerful card he could get without experiencing a cpu bottleneck. The last part of that is key.

No question the 560 ti is faster than the 460, I just question whether or not the OP will benefit from the additional power as far as min fps go. Clearly even a high end multi-gpu setup will provide higher max/average fps, however after you reach a certain amount of performance no additional gpu power is going to enhance your min fps due to cpu bottlenecks.

That applies from both AMD and Intel.

"What Nvidia Video card will bottleneck.."
I'd say AMD too but rules are rules

Get the fastest card that you can afford, simply buying somthing slower because you think it will bottleneck is simpy putting you into another hole. you can always overclock your processor or upgrade it later on down the road so get a gpu that will hold up well against the newer games coming out.

Ah, you are correct.lol Shame cause AMD kills nvidia right now. 6950 is a powerhouse for a sub 300 dollar card.

This. I said this way earlier in the thread too. Dont worry bout the bottleneck it will still run faster then when you get faster cpu it will go even faster.

As mentioned in thread 12, and now we are on 78!

Unless he plans on upgrading real soon, thats bad advice. why spend an extra 100 dollars if his CPU will just bottleneck it for the next year? No use in paying for performance you cant use.

This is the point we're trying to make here.

GTX 580 TRI SLI overclocked to 800 core each on a 1090T barely musters any performance increase over my system.

1090T 4.1GHz TRI-SLI 580's overclocked


i5-2500k with GTX 470 SLI



The OP doesn't want to spend $1500+ on GPUs to get nearly the same performance I can obtain with $365 gpus.
