Default Re: Tested Intel® Core™2 Duo with 480GTX for CPU bottleneck

People say yeah its your CPU,MEM,motherboard with the bottleneck,while actual fact theres no real bottleneck (except a few games but playable anyway)with highly clocked good CPU from intel.
Thats about it really,Im not a big benchmarker,I just like playing games and did the test for fun.
Hold up there buddy... For BC2, you really needed to do a 32 person match online and see what you got. You may not see a bottleneck in single-player, but as soon as you crank the player numbers in a multiplayer match, you'll get a different story.

I'll do a couple of 10-minute benchmarks in multiplayer (2 core and 4 core tests) and get back with you
