I7 3770k And Gtx 680 Or 690

I'm thinking in buying a new intel processor, because i have amd now and i experience a lot of instability, not only in the system, but in a lot of games as well, so i wanna ask you if you are a i7 3770k owner and you are running this game with at least one gtx 680 or gtx 690 how many fps you get in "back to karkand" expansion, i repeat, only expansion, and 64 players, all in ultra, please, i don't want trolls, only be honest please, it's very important and i will waste my money for this rig:

I7 3770k 3, 5 ghz - stock cooler, mobo: asus p9x79 pro ram: 4 x kingston 4gb 1600 mhz (16 gb total amount), gtx 680 or 690 (i listened that one 680 it's not even able to move back to karkand at constant 60 fps)

Will A Gtx 690 And A I7 3770 (not 3770k) Bottleneck?

i have a fairly great computer with a gtx660 and a i7 3770, but lately one monitor just seems too little, so im upgrading my gpu to a gtx 690 and adding a few monitors to my setup. But of course like any sensible person, i want to be sure that if i put in a 690 it wont **** everything up with bottlenecking my cpu, so is a i7 3770 capable of keeping up with gtx 690?

Would This Cpu Bottleneck The Gtx 690?

I originally had selected the i7 3820 to go with my gtx 690, but upon reading how much smoother the ivy bridge runs and that the i7 3770k is a better cpu for gaming, i have switched my selection, however, my question now is, does the i7 3770k bottleneck the gtx 690?

How Bad Will My System Bottleneck A Gtx 690?

I've been wanting to get a gpu upgrade. I've been thinking of going to a hd7970 (i was after the slight increase in performance when overclocked) but i changed my mind. I just got a 120hz monitor and it's great in games (i've been spending a lot these past few days but i can't help it ) basically i want all my games to be at 120fps or atleast close to it. (Namely bf3 and crysis 2) i know this is an aging x58 system but i figured i only use my pc on gaming anyway so what the ***. I should just sell my gtx 680 and get a gtx 690. Now my questions:

1. How bad wil my cpu botteneck a gtx 690? 2. Will i still get decent performance with a single pci-e 16x 2. 0 slot? I remember reading an article about this 3. Am i stupid?

From where i'm from to get the gtx690 along with the money im gonna get with selling my gtx 680 i'm gonna spend about 30, 000 php(probably a litle less with a slight discoutn i could get from a friend's friend) or 700usd. As for my whole system i think i would be able to upgrade to ivybridge not till january next year so it's a long wait. If i get contended by the performance i prolly wouldn't anymore. I've outgrown benching and i'm only interested in actual gaming performance

For the cpu bottleneck the best i could do with my cpu is 4. 4ghz ht off. I highly doubt i can get it to 4. 5ghz i remember failing instantly at prime95 when i tried and the voltage was so high already. I only use my pc for gaming i don't really need the threads.

Gtx 260 - 9800 Gtx Not Putting Monitors Into Sleep

Well, i built a new rig and with my 4850 when i put vista sp1 to sleep the monitor will go into a standby mode (lights turn from blue to orange). However it seems that if i run either a 9800 gtx or a gtx 260 during sleep the monitor would be still on and stuck with "no signal input, check video cable" and stay on. Even if i halt the box the monitors will still have this message and remain on. I have no problem powering both of them off, but it'll be nice to have it done automatically. Anyone know of any solutions?

Upgrading Intel Pentium 4 560 3.6ghz Lga775 Processor

I was thinking of upgrading my pc, as i like to keep it fast so i can run all my heavy cpu apps running at once, as well as cut down my render times. I currently have a intel pentium 4 560 3. 6ghz lga775 processor, i have had a look around for a motherboard that can support two processors but i couldn't find any just dual cores . So they do them, or what do you recommend me doing?, But before that im increasing my current cooling system .

Ivy Bridge 3770k Gaming Results Vs Core I7-920 At 4.2ghz

"intel has just released brand new ivy bridge cpu architecture on 22nm. Although intel has released 14 new mobile and desktop cpus, we will focus on their flagship desktop cpu - the core i7-3770k. " I am thinking of getting a pair of x5550 because i have a brand new evga classified sr-2 which i bought earlier this year purely out of jealousy but thank fully funds ran dry and could not buy anything else other than ram :p now since the mobo is not even opened and laying there gathering dust i was wondering if i could make it into a gaming/folding machine at a certain price.

My old amd multi gpu folding machine is dead after a short circuit burned two cards and left one with a weird bug. That machine was never good for gaming there was micro-shutting and lot of performance problems. This board with a few gpu's can change that quite a bit, cant afford a array of 7970's so will have to get something else instead.

Is My System Bottleneck?

I have a

Amd phenom ii x4 925 (2. 8ghz)
2gb ddr3
Ati radeon hd4350 512mb
320gb sata harddrive
500watt psu
Windows xp media edition

I bought this a few days ago upgrading from my old **** athlon 3200+. I was expecting to be able to play like gta4 and all the good games but for some reason most of the games im playing is lagging badly even on low settings. Gta4 is the worst even all set on low it lags really bad, cant even drive the car. And most of all the other games i play is like when i move the mouse say left or right it will do it . 5 secs after, like a late reaction. Thats in games like far cry 2, bf bad company 2, bioshock 2. What is the problem? I thought this system would be good. Is there something wrong with it?

Bottleneck Ati 4550 512mb

I'm thinking of buying a ati 4550 512mb, i'm going to be playing most games at 1024x768 or 800x600 if they don't run at higher resolutions with decent graphics. My pc specs are:

Intel 2. 66 ghz

1 gb ram ddr1

Intel d101ggc motherboard

Now i know it sucks for gaming, i searched and the 4550 can handle most games pretty well at low resolutions so the question is how much performance am i going to lose because of my low pc specs?I cant upgrade i have no money btw.

Will the nvidia geforce 7950gt get bottlenecked from my computer specs? How about the 6800gt? Im trying to get a agp card that wont get bottlenecked or will barely get bottlenecked by a tiny bit from my computer because why would i get a card thats being bottle necked when i could get a cheaper card and get the same performance because its all tied down by my slower components in my comp you know?

Here are my specs:

Powercolor 5750 512mb Gddr5 Video Card Bottleneck

Is my computer being bottlenecked? I recently purchased a powercolour 5750 512mb gddr5 vid card. However, the video card runs a bit slow. On crysis for example at 1440 x 900 on high med settings i get 10-20 fps max. I see other people maxing it out on the same card with 30+ fps. My system specs:
-Amd 4050e dual core 2. 1ghz
-2gb ddr2 ram
Vista 32 bit
550 watt bfg psu
Ati 5750 512mb gddr5

Do u think the ram and cpu could be a bottleneck and are affecting my performance?

Gtx 260 Problem

I just purchased a new mobo, video card, ram, processor and psu but i'm having a real big problem. Well when i have it hooked up and both 6 pin power connectors in it, after a few minutes of doing anything my pc either locks up or goes to the dreaded blue screen saying irql_not_less_or_equal. I have all of my mobo drivers and video card drivers installed. I got the latest for the gtx 260 straight from nvidias website. Can it be that my psu is faulty and not giving it enough power? The card only takes 500w and i have a 550w. Please if anyone can help me i would greatly appreciate it. Also for some reason on my dxdiag tool it says i only have 3294 ram. How is that possible? I have 4 gigs in. Specs. Mother board - asus p5q-em
Processor - intel core 2 duo e7200 2. 53 ghz
Ram - 4 gigs 2x2 patriot memory 900 mhz pc2-7200 viper series
Psu - 550w cooler master extreme power
200gb sata 7200 rpm hd
And of course my awesome new gtx 260 that i can't even use.

Overclocking 7800 Gtx

I have a bfg geforce 7800 gtx (oc'ed). Although already stock overclocked, was just curious of what program to use to overclock. I heard of a program ' coolbits ', but couldn't find a version for a 7800 gtx. I checked the nvidia menu, to look for an overclocking menu, but there isnt. The only thing remotely close is the temperature monitor thing.

260 Gtx Crashes Computer

My 6 month old evga 260 gtx crashes my computer shortly after launching games on high resolution, max settings (now i'm no genius but i'm pretty sure this card should handle these settings to an extent without crashing, maybe lower fps but thats all i would expect. )

My custom rig is as follows:

Evga 260 gtx
Asus p5q pro
Corsair 750w
Intel core 2 e8400

4 gig ram (i recently upgraded from faulty ram, the problem with gpu was occurring before, so im guessing it has nothing to do with this. )

Wd cav black 640gb

I do have sufficient ventilation in the case itself. 3 120mm fans, so this shouldn't be an issue. I have downloaded the evga precision tool and gpu-z and increased my fan speed from stock 40% to 100%. Doing this will increase my gaming time and steady temps for a bit but my pc still crashes after a while.gpu-z says on idle my card is at running at ~41c, on load during game it was crashing at ~54c with fan at 40% and at 100% it was crashing somewhere around 60c. Any suggestions?

Screen Flash / Gtx 285

Im getting some random display problems, typically in windows once every few minutes i'll get some random screen pop up for a fraction of a second, i believe for one cycle on the monitor. I'm using a gtx 285, and this computer has somehow destroyed two radeon 4850x2's in the past, so that those cards would put random dots all over the screen. I put this card in a little over half a year ago, and it has had this problem ever since. I checked the psu, rma'd the mother board, the problem persists. Changed drivers many times. Any ideas what might be causing this?
