  • here....1070/ i7 3770k question....

    Hello...I have an i7 3770k, my mobo is the ASRock Z77 Extreme 4...8 gig of compatible GSkills memory.

    Recently was playing my favorite MMO, SWTOR and according to the game's built in tool, (Ctrl+Shft+F) my GPU was bottlenecking at a glorious 11 fps... My current card is a Sapphire Vapor-X R9 290X 8 GB. With some research and recommendations I picked up a ASUS ROG GeForce GTX 1070 STRIX-GTX1070-O8G-GAMING 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5...

    I'm hoping that'll solve the issue but I'm wondering if that's too much card for my i7 3770k? Thanks for any advice!

    11fps sounds strange, you should surely be getting more than that, a 290x isn't that bad of a card. I have an i7 3770k and a gtx 1080 and it runs great, I wouldn't say it's bottlenecking but it doesn't bring out the full potential of the card.

    How are your temps? Have you overclocked? Have you tested other games?
