I know that a bottle neck is trouble with frames or something but how do you know if you have fun and how do you fix?

Thanks

Ithoght a bottle neck was where somit in ur rig is less powerfull and then slows al of the other more powerfull components down to its speed

Having voices in your head is normal. Listening to them, common. Arguing, acceptable. However, when you lose the argument, you're in trouble.

there's a regular in these forums ( I forget who) that say's "Your computer is only as strong as its weakest component". example: you have a kick @$$ system, with AMD 3200+64 with an ATI x800, 18xDVD+R, but you have only 1 stick of 128 memory. your ram would thus be your bottleneck.

that makes sense. I thought it was something hindering your computers performance that could be adjusted as needed. Whenever I heard the term bottle neck it was usually used in a phrase "blah blah blah, it will CREATE a bottle neck, thus hindering you performance." Something of that nature. Thanks for the feedback

A bottle neck is something you drink your beer through.

Its called a bottleneck because if you imagine the data is flowing through a cable, and the cable is the bottle. The bottleneck is a thinner cable, so the data is squeezed through the thinner cable, but because it is smaller, less data can get through in the same time as if the cable was thick at all points. So you get less performance. The bottleneck is said to be caused by the weakest component, to use the analogy above, the 128MB RAM. That is the weakest component, so is the thinnest cable, and so is the bottleneck Sorry if this doesn't make much sense, I'm not that good at explaining terms of phrase.

personally Ram is not the bottle neck, usually its the HD, HDs are still slower than anything.

AMD Athlon XP-M 2500+ (133x14= 1867MHz) (209x11= 2299MHz)
DFI LP NF2 Ultra-B (Hellfire 3EG Rev2)
