from completed build Restored 2008-11 era editing PC.
Doesn't seem to limit an RX 480 or below, especially at 4GHz. It produces a fair amount of heat at that point so a decent cooler is a good idea with these i7s. The i7 975 Extreme Edition is good enough pretty much, extremely good enough.

from completed build ARK/TF2 server
I got this from someone for free who upgraded to a new i7. Considering how old this processor is, it's pretty dang good. It's basically the equivalent of a modern i5 processor, although with a considerably lower single-thread rating. I use it to host servers, and combined with 16 gigs of ram, can run 2 ark servers and a TF2 pub at the same time, while at roughly 40% CPU usage. Pretty great! Its major downsides are the lower single-thread rating, and a higher power draw because it's 9 years old. Overclocking helps boost performance, but increases voltage even higher.
