If that makes sense if i am wrong then please someone correct me
Bottlenecking is basicly summed up to be a 3 in 1 consisting of the RAM/CPU/Video card. Now all 3 work together(including sound cards or on board systems on the motherboard) as a team.
*EXAMPLE*Now lets say one of the members of the super computer team consisting of the RAM/CPU/Videocard has a broken leg, and the one with the broken leg is the CPU. Sense the CPU has a broken leg, then the video card wont be able to show its full force, and the RAM wont be able to perform as good as it would if it were to receive all the info it needed to page files and keep the operating system intact. Everything works together so the video card needs a CPU that can handle the task to pump the video card info so it can get the job done. The same thing goes with Memory and the video card. So if 1 of the member of the team is weak then the rest will be just as weak and the team will fall. HOPE THIS HELPS.
