Will This Rig Bottleneck My Gtx690?


I'm building a new gaming rig and i believe i have all the parts i want in my order. However, the last detail i need for my setup is to see if my rig will bottleneck with such a powerful card. Intel core i7-3770k ivy bridge 4. 5ghz | 8gb samsung ram ddr3 1600 (11-11-11-28) | sli evga gtx 670 4gb vram 1006/1084/6008 stg.

Cheap C2d Rig

I'm thinking of building an incredibly cheap entry-level c2d rig with plenty of upgrade potential & i've come up with the following list of parts; i realise that i haven't included an optical drive, because to save that extra £15 i'll initially be using a usb drive that i have. So, does this look like a solid machine to everyone? Anything you would change? And before somebody chimes in & says that the 8400gs is poor for gaming, as long as it is as good as my venerable 5900xt then it'll be fine for me. Oh & the machine is going to be running linux, so if anybody knows of any huge incompatibilites with any of this hardware, do tell.

$800 Budget College Rig Advice

I'm building a pc to take with me up to college so i was wondering if you guys could help me choose what to buy. I'm thinking of building either a sff pc or maybe building an atx build into something small like the lian li a05. I have a $800-1000 budget but less would be better since i can spend the money on other things like a bigger monitor. Some things will probably be picked up used or on ebay so prices take that into account. The atx build would definitely be cheaper but i have to fly this thing up from hawaii so i don't know if it'll fit as a carry-on. Either way, below are two builds that i thought would be ok choices, let me know what you think! Both are pretty much the same but changed to fit form factor. Btw this pc will be used mostly for ps work, light gaming, and school. Of course, os will be either vista business or vista ultimate 64, and main storage will be probably be a 1tb external so i can take data to and from college easily but i might put a couple 750s into the build since the prices are cheap right now.

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.

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?

Xfx Ati Radeon Hd 5770 Bottleneck

I recently bought a xfx ati radeon hd 5770, everything installed fine, but i opened up cpu-z and noticed that the core clocks where running significantly lower than they should be, i alt and tabbed out of a game to check what the clocks where while in game, and they still where the same, but a lot of my games are still lagging and i asked someone why and he said it was bottlenecking. Here are my specs:

Windows vista home premium intel pentium duel cpu e2180 @ 2. 00ghz
2gb ram
300w psu
Ati radeon hd 5700 series

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?

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.

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?
