I'm going to build a new PC but I want to make sure that the parts that I buy will not bottle-neck one another?
How I make sure they don't?

My current thoughts on the hardware so far are:
AMD Phenom 2 X6 1055T
2 XFX Radeon HD 6870 Crossfired
16GB Corsair Vengeance 1600 RAM
ASUS M5A99X EVO AM3+ AMD 990X
OCZ ZT Series 750W Fully-Modular 80PLUS Bronze
1TB Seagate Barricuda 7200 RPM HDD

There's no bottleneck in that machine as the 1055t is 2.8ghz will be the slowest part in there with the HDD... However, the 1055t is still a beast and cost nothing so go for it and do a little overclock on that thing too !!!

Gaming PC: MSI Z77A-G45 ::: Intel Core I7 3770k @ 4.83Ghz ::: EVGA GTX680SC Signature ~1300mhz Boost/7122mhz ram ::: 16GB 4*4gb G.Skill 2240mhz CL10 ::: ASUS Xonar DX ::: Crucial M4 128gb (windows) + Intel 330 180gb (Steam games) + 1TB Caviar Black (storage) ::: Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold M1000 ::: Antec P280 ::: Noctua NHU12P SE2 ::: ASUS VE247H ::: Logitech G510 ::: Cooler Master Storm Sentinel II ::: Logitech X530 ::: Steelseries Siberia V-2 Black & gold edition

Biggest thing you could do to avoid bottlenecks with that system is to get a 64GB SSD to use as a boot drive. Mechanical hard drives alone really are a bottleneck to most current hardware imo.

Thank you guys for the information. A friend of mine has the same processor and he has his overclocked at 3.2 GHz so i will do the same.
Thank you again for the info.
