i have a 7770 gpu with a pentiume g 2010 2.8 ghz cpu now my question is does that cpu bottle neck my gpu and how much percentage my gpu loss from its performance

  1. No, not at all. You could go with a much faster video card and still not bottleneck.

    Ivy Bridge cores are much faster per clock than FX processor, so a 2.8 Ivy would be comparative to a 3.5 Fx.

    so you mean i dont have 2 buy an i3 cuz i am fine with this pentiume g2010 cpu and there is not bottle neck at all

    This all depends on your games. Personally, I think the Ivy Bridge Pentiums are very well suited for a GPU like yours.

    Here is G850 with (edit) HD 7850 as an example. Your processor is about equal:

    Here is G2020 with HD 7970: (hehe) But note these are pretty demanding and well-threaded titles (The Pentium will typically do even better).

  4. there will be no bottleneck.you can go upto gtx 650ti boost

    aha nice ok most of the game that i play require at the recommended requirments an core duo and quad and since the ivy bridge cpu out preforme those then i am fine right ?

    If a game recommends core 2 duo, then it is typically not a well threaded game, and the great per/clock performance of an Ivy B Pentium should be ideal.

    When a game recommends a quad, and especially goes on to list an even more powerful "optimal" rig, then you may be in more trouble. Core 2 quad (say Q9550) can easily outperform Ivy B Pentium in well-threaded titles. I doubt a stock Q6600 could do it though.

    To the op the g2010 will bottleneck the 7770 in highly threaded games. Codemaster games the i3 destroys the pentium line cpus as there games need 4 threads. Get the i3 at least.


    It sounds the OP already owns G2010 and HD 7770.

    True, i3 destroys the Pentiums in those racing games (and most games), but it isn't required and his GPU would top out earlier. The G2010 can max out 1920x1080 (Ultra preset with 8x MSAA) in F1 2012 and the DiRT series, rarely ever dropping below 40 fps. Can't speak for GRID 2, but in their other series you'll see GPU scaling with his HD 7770 (as you increase resolutions with Ultra). Actually, an overclocked 7770 and G2010 would just about be a perfect match at 1920x1080. The balance shifts (GPU scaling fades) somewhere between stock HD 7770 and HD 7850.
