    How to remove a dual boot without EasyBCD.

    Will an fx-9370 bottleneck a gtx 970?

    I'm looking at a second hand PC with an fx 9370 and a gtx 970, and I want to know if the cpu will bottleneck the gpu? Also, the seller says that he is running the cpu on an asus m5a97 r2? I thought that you couldn't run them on anything but a 990fx.
