Default bottle neck and socket type question

I have a P4 3.4 OC to 3.65 and i was wondering if this would bottle neck me with a 6600, i don't think it would. and if there is a big increase in performance in going from a socket 478 to a AMD 939(really want a X2!!)

ok you question is hard to understand....are you asking if the 6600 will bottleneck the P4 or the AMD ??

if its the P4 no it wont but i sudgest spending that little bit extra and getting the 6600GT...you wont regret it

as for the amd....socket 478 to 939 will be a big diffrence if you get X2 processor...

well i was thinking about building a whole new system with PCI-E to support the new dx10 cards, cause i don't think they will make them for AGP. but i wanted to know if my CPU would be bottle necked. So is there a large performance increase with the 939 socket type? don't care about AM2 or 940, maybe the conroe though. hah

your P4 shouldnt be bottlenecked....the dx10 cards will most likly not be coming out in AGP form.....939 yes there is a perfomance increase because of the better processor type...and getting the x2 you wouldnt be going wrong...the conroe will be good as well
