I don't believe in 'overkill'
There is no such thing as "too much power" in the computing world as far as I'm concerned....the only thing I consider 'overkill' is freakin quad SLI board that was made by gigabyte.....that whole idea is just ridiculous.
if it were me, I'd simply buy an opty and OC it like who was it...003 said in the beginning.........I guess if I was just stupid rich though I might buy the FX-60 just cause I could and OC the crap out of that and beat the snot out of you opty owners
What I hate is when people say "Graphic card is bottlenecking your system"
I don't even want to get into it, but technically it's impossible for a graphics card to 'bottleneck' the system..
"well if you have a Gf2 in an FX-60 machine it'd bottleneck it"
No, the graphics card just sucks and can't perform that well in it's department since the CPU and RAM don't directly communicate with the graphics card.
Bottlenecking only happen when two components have to directly communicate to each other and one is slower than the other....this was mainly a problem in the socket A days when someone had a 400FSB cpu but was only running say, PC2100 RAM for example..
