you can tell very easy on your own. bottlenecks vary program to program.

so, fire up whatever game it is you are playing. make sure task manager is running so you can see your cpu usage. play a little, and then see how active your cpu cores were. if they were running at 100 percent, you have a bottleneck

its also entirely possible whatever you are running doesnt support sli

and as the gent above me said, overclock that cpu. its begging for it

I have seen a lot of inprovement with ocerclocking my system I cant seem to get it higher than 3.7 GHZ without getting Blue screen. I looked up the cpu I have its the i7 920 D0 is the cpu i have and running 1066 memeory. I was thinking if i got differnet memory it would help get 4GHZ
