A couple of months ago i bought a 6200 FX series processor, a Crosshair V formula, and 16GB of corsair vengeance RAM. After my GTX 550 Ti being bottlenecked by my old system which only supported PCI-E 1.0 it was a breath of fresh air.
I was really happy as I could play WoW on ultra and stuck at 60 FPS without any issues. I have been lurking on the beta and my system dips down to 20 FPS with the new graphics updates and I would like to continue playing on ultra. I know its only beta and there could be graphical bugs that make this happen but I'm also a fan of having a powerhouse PC that won't struggle with anything. So I bought a asus 7850 HD I installed it all, removed all the drivers several times and would never get over 30FPS on any game. When i turned down the graphics on any game to low, It still would only be 30FPS. People said my CPU is probably bottlenecking my CPU.
Which only confused me further, as I have not been into PC building long but the FX series is AMDs top CPU line so I thought it would have no trouble supporting a 7850 HD which people have said is really slow anyway.
Now I've been thinking about which graphics card would be best for my CPU with no bottlenecking. I've thought about running 2 GTX 550s in SLI and that might give me the performance boost that I look for and they are also pretty cheap cards as graphics cards go, I realise i would have to upgrade my PSU to do this as well as I only have a 600W one.
My question is really, Which GPU would not bottleneck my CPU. Going back to the 7850 is not an option as I have returned it. And I would much rather stick to nvidia this time around? Also, can anyone tell me an easy way to tell if it will bottleneck my GPU without messing around with overclocking as I'm not sure how to overclock or to know if my system is stable once I have done it.
