Will it? Or should i upgrade my CPU?(to scared to OC)
Yes it will. Just overclock it dude. Mine does 3Ghz easy.
Even @ 2.8ghz the bottleneck should go away.
The first time I raised my FSB (by one step--mine goes in 2s, so I booted at 202) from 200 to 202, from 2600MHz to 2626MHz, I was scared too. But now I found some good settings to run and I'm happy with it. 2.7GHz, DDR2 540 4-4-4-12
wanna try 4-4-4-11
How do i OC? I know i have to some how raise the FSB but what else?
There's a plethera of information in the overclocking and cooling section. Read the stickies.
Seriously man... just clock it. I can get 3.42GHz (10x342) @ 1.45v out my E4400 without trying. Putting a little effort in, 401x8 (3.2GHz) gives some quads a run for their money nevermind a Duo. Just watch CPU temps and chipset temps. Dont go above 1.6v on your CPU either, even then only go to that if you got good cooling. If your on stock.. I doubt you will be able to safely break 3GHz.

E6400 @ 3 hz bottlenecks a 3870 so i think your proc will dish out teh same treatment to a 8800GT
The fastest chip intel make is only 3ghz, which is significantly faster than amd's fastest chip, so amd's graphics card is doubly bottlenecked by their own best chip?
twas in one of teh 3870 threads, belongs to a member here.
you want me to look through 1000 pgs of nothing to try and find something.
you could prolly even get away with using an e2180
Thanks a whole lot everone!
I have a good OC board and HSF!. 680i SE(C2D Overclocking board) and Artic Cooler Freezer 7 Pro cooling the CPU.
People have got too obsessed with bottlenecking. Yes the GPU does better if you got a faster processor, but that's not saying there wouldn't be a huge jump from going 8600GTS to 8800GTS. If you don't get near any improvement with GPU OC, then you can start to worry about bottlenecking.
But I'd OC that CPU too Stay with stock voltage and go as far (stable) as you can with that if you want to be safe. It should do 2333 at least with stock volts, maybe even 2666 if it's a real good chip.
Mine does 3Ghz on stock
you're a swine, mine needs 1.41v (and 1.45 for 3.4)
unfair 1.3625v here, but lower multiplier too. Least I beat Grings
Heh, I know mine is going to need a voltage jump to go past 3Ghz, it won't post at anythng higher than 3Ghz. I just don't see any point, or have the time to spend stress testing it properley, so at the moment I'm leaving it at 3Ghz.
What are yall griping about? I have to use 1.6V to get 3.5GHZ benchamrk stable with my E4300.
