    it is the last cpu that my mobo can take with a bios update. my question is i have 2 evga gtx 285 vid cards will this cause a bottle neck with the cpu and will it cause problems in rift?

    you're already bottlenecked, so its going to be faster.


    just plan to OC, especially the northbridge - get it to at least 2.6GHz.

    Just like CPU core ratio, CPU-NB multiplier is upwards unlocked as well on that chip. Just need to change a few values and a voltage in BIOS.
