Will an AMD A6-3500 bottleneck GTX650Ti?

Planning to upgrade my GT430 to GTX650Ti. I have my processor A6-3500 and it will bottleneck GTX650Ti or not? Im using only 1360x768 resolution.

  1. it shouldn't bottleneck, but i would suggest for you to go with an AMD card so that you may utilize the hybrid crossfire.

    No it will not bottleneck. I however, disagree with mafisometal's suggestion about Hybrid CF. A single 650ti will be more powerful than any APU/CF combo that you can buy.

    Thanks for your info! but if im using 1920x1080 reso would it bottleneck?
  4. I wouldnt say it bottlenecks the graphics card but it would definitely be a weak point. I know in games like crysis 3 and skyrim that are cpu intensive games your frame rate would suffer but not to the point it was unplayable. I have the A6 3620 right now and am about to switch to a I5 2320 setup instead just do to the fact that even with the 3620 overclocked to 4.5ghz it struggles

    I only play mercenary online here in the philippines (mercenary ops or M.A.R.S game in other countries). For the mean time a6-3500 just for now to maximize mercenary online. In the future I would upgrade my a6-3500 to FX-6300 and to play intensive games like Battlefield 3.
