Planning to buy a MSI 8800 GTX will my pc be bottlenecked
« on: July 13, 2007, 11:12:09 AM »



I am planning to get an 8800gtx from MSI or a EVGA brand.
The Card I am planning to get is a MSI GeForce 8800 GTX OC 768 MB
I have a AMD Athlon X2 4200+ OCed to 2.6 gHz. 2Gb of Dual Channeled Ram (OCZ Platinum PC2-6400 = DDR2

800). MSI K9N Diamond 590 SLI MCP Motherboard. And a Antec Trio 650 watt, 3 12v railing arrangment. Will

my system be Bottlenecked with a 8800 Gtx onboard, or not.

Bottle neck wont be from the video card.

everything else you listed seems to be a good system. If your running into issues with games you might want to get some benchmark tools and see where your having the issue with speed.

also might want to learn what needs to me running on your PC and what doesn't some of the services that start at boot time can be turned off. And disabling disk swaping and doing a full scan disk defrag. then force a set size can also help with speed.

What kind of video card are you running on there right now?
Also, believe it or not, a hard drive can be a bottleneck. What kind are you running?
