Yes, it will work just fine
I have searched the net for comparisons between increased ghz in CPUs and the effect on the GPU performance.
What would the difference in performance be between an Intel i7 920 2,66Ghz, and an i7-3770K 3,5Ghz CPU when comparing to the gaming experience a GPU will give you? (in this case a GTX 780).
I have seen a lot of ppl who overlock their CPU`s but when it comes to gaming, I have heard that it really only depends on the GPU, and not so much the CPU? Correct me if i am wrong.
This must be assessed on the basis of each individual game. Most posters who harp on and on about "bottlenecking" have little to no knowledge about what they're talking about.
All games use the CPU to perform game logic calculations, and the GPU to construct the final visual scene. Everything else is a matter of developer preference.
Skyrim for example uses the CPU to perform some of the shadow and lighting operations that would normally be performed by the GPU. Skyrim is a game that is notoriously dependent on the CPU for performance and upgrading to a Ivybridge/Haswell processor may be a good idea if you happen to like lots of Skyrim mods.
Battlefield:Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 3 use the CPU to perform real time environmental sound processing (War Tapes audio mode) that has historically been offloaded to digital signal processors on Creative Labs sound cards. Enabling this can result in a noticeable drop in framerate if the CPU isn't up to snuff.
Many other games don't do any fancy processing and will simply have the CPU waiting for the GPU to do its job most of the time.
