Bottlenecking
Hello i have a gigabyte gtx 560 ti factory oced to 900mhz and an intel i5-2300 2.8GHz oced to 3.1GHz and i just wanted to know if there could be a chance that the card is bottlenecking the cpu or vise versa.

and thanks to anyone that assists me.

[i]You can diagnose your own bottleneck quite easily. Simply use MSI Afterburner, or EVGA Precision. Open the GPU chart, Right-Click on the chart, select Reset from the window, enter a benchmark directly after, and when it is complete observe the usage spikes on the GPU. If they are quite small and consistent in nature you have a near extinguished bottleneck from CPU given information to GPU utilization of said information. Observing percentages is extremely useful when skeptical of GPU consumption during a full-screen or windowed application.

If there is in fact a bottleneck it will come from your CPU delivering information to the 560ti. It is extremely rare for a CPU to outperform a GPU, simply based on the nature of operation and task assigned. [/i]

[b]EDIT:[/b] [i]I can tell you, that you have one based on the frequency in conjunction with processor selection, but it is better that people learn rather than simply be told from those who have learned.[/i]

So we must hand it over to our tame PC tweaker. Some say he sticky tapes a block of uranium to his dinner before eating it and that he sucks moisture out of ducks. All we know is, he's called Hooks.

Tha'ts a SB processor. Even at stock it won't bottleneck a GTX560Ti /wave.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':wave:' />

First of all i just want to say thanks a lot for replaying...
And i did ran a benchmark which my gpu usage was at 98% between 99% after that it went back to 0% and every once in a while it spikes to 1% and back to 0%
so as i understood there is no bottlenecking..oh and would you recommend taking the cpu clocks back to stock?

and yet again thanks for helping out.
