Default Bottlenecks

I have a GTX 260 with 4GB RAM, E6850 @ 3.0GHz, and a dedicated 8800GTS tpo Physx.

Could the 8800 be bottlenecking anything?

Cheers.

No, a dedicated physx card won't bottleneck anything. You're processor is bottlenecking the card though.

doesn't matter, most dual cores are bottlenecked save for the e8x00 series and those you might have to overclock a tad to get rid of the bottleneck.
