Looks very nice, it's about as top of the line as the Trinity CPU goes let's talk a little about that bottleneck.
I'm sure you've read this:
"Our tests demonstrate fairly little difference between a $225 LGA 1155 Core i5-2500K and a $1000 LGA 2011 Core i7-3960X, even when three-way graphics card configurations are involved. It turns out that memory bandwidth and PCIe throughput don't hold back the performance of existing Sandy Bridge-based machines. "
And here's the write up on the Trinity:
Given the benchmarks I see on the Trinity in gaming, I wonder why you opted for another video card. Maybe you really wanted to get an i5 or better for something else? That is, for games it should be pretty good. But HERE'S A BIG ISSUE -> Ready? I'm finding folk that think that there will be some PC with no lag on games. There is no such thing.
I built my PC couple of months ago and I feel like it is not as effective as I expected it to be. I still have issues with lag and it is not as fast.
I think it is my cpu that is bottle necking the whole system, but I can't be sure. If someone could suggest what would be a better cpu for this AMD build, that would sure help me a lot. Or maybe it is something else?
I do hope I posted this in the right section
