    I can confirm this as well.

    When running 3DMark 2006, my FX62 didn't do any better or worse than either the X6800 or QX6700 builds with the same cards in them. I could switch out the video cards, and the score would change, but still no "CPU bottleneck" that I could see.

    For the record; the Quad Father with a pair of 8800GTS's scored higher than the FX62 and QX6700 or X6800 with a pair of GTX's, so obviously the CPU still plays a HUGE part, but then again we're only talking about one particular benchmark that I'm using (because I'm lazy.)

    Bingo
    And the difference should be even less when gaming.

    With 3DMark '06 I ignore the CPU score altogether and look at the SM 2.0 and 3.0 scores instead. I've seen 7950GT scores on Conroes that are higher overall than mine but had lower SM scores. The CPU's are artificially inflating what should be a graphics intensive score.
