OK. The reason for the question, which was difficult to word correctly, is I've read so many posts in so many threads, at so many sites, and the wording indicates that there is a common belief that every pc has a point, where if you install a GPU that is too much for it, the result would be a *decrease* in overall game performance.
So that is not the case, correct?
What I'm saying is that there is a GPU for each system that will allow the best performance for that system, and the next better performing GPU won't increase gaming performance, but it also not decrease it either, correct?
It would seem to me that all factors taken into consideration, the bottlenecking of a CPU should occur close to where the GPU runs at 100 percent, or the GPU should be the bottleneck close to the point where the CPU is running at 100 percent. Am I correct in assuming that this would represent the ideal CPU/GPU pairing?
