thank you :)

yes it will bottleneck it. also your PSU may not be able to handle the card as it seems generic to me.

Go for it as the bottleneck will only be in CPU intense games. Thasan is right about the psu though it is too weak to run the graphics card. Also some more, and better, ram would help but not needed

thank you sir , but can you give me some recommend for my RIG ? because when i googling lot of people told. Gtx 660 will not BN with i3 2100 , but in other side <game-debat#.com> its say maximum GPU GTX 550Ti

650ti boost would be good imo. it may be bottlenecked a little but I would think not. it depends on what resolution you play at

I should have asked this a long time ago but just didn't think of it what resolution is your screen? If the resolution is high enough (like retardedly high) then a 690 won't bottleneck but you'd have to have like 6 1440p screens for that. If you have one 1080p then go for the 650ti boost. If you play at lower resolution let me know what it is

so if i choose the GTX 660 , and play at lower resolution it will okey ? maybe <1360x768> , how about that sir ? because if i upgrade my GT9600 to GTX 550Ti , i think it's not enough for play crysis 3 , metro last light and BF3(4 too) . 2012 -2013 games sir. :)

CPU bottleneck isn't really anything to fear. I'm currently running an AMD 4170FX with a 7970 (4170FX is similar to an I3). I can play all of my games in ultra settings with 60+ FPS in all, except metro (I get about 30 - 40 fps). If you're going to upgrade however, get a better psu such as a gs500 or cx600

CPU bottleneck completely depends on the game you're playing. If the CPU cannot run a game as fast as your GPU, that's a bottleneck.

In my experience with the same CPU, the only bottlenecking I experience is drops to 25-30fps in places with a ton of explosions or a huge draw-distance. But several other, newer games play above 60fps at all times, so it really depends on the game. The only game that CPU cannot play well at Ultra settings is Crysis 3.

thankyou sir , the conclution it can , but BN , em the bottleneck cannot broke the other HW sir ?
