    Link Width 8x?

    I'm using a backup rig since my main rig bit the dust. It's a Pentium D 820 2.8, 1 GB, ECS nForce 570 SLI, 8800 GTS. I seem to get pretty crappy FPS (15-45) while playing Insurgency (source mod). Is it because this board caps my 8800 at 8x link width?

    I don't think limiting you to 8x is really hurting you. It is probably that processor...

    I'm not following either...

    EDIT: Oh, I got it. He meant to say "Clock that Pentium D or else". I understand now

    He also says your CPU is your bottleneck.

    If the board is an SLi capable mobo and SLi is enabled it sets both the lanes to 8x afaik... I might be wrong though =p
