So my question today is -
Will my old a6-3650 APU bottleneck GTX760 GC by alot? Will be mostly gaming on 1920x1080.
And a bit offtopic but I'm planning on buying a cpu after a while, should i go for top of the line Intel i5 Haswell or should i wait for AMD's next gen cpus? I'm not in a rush.

Sorry for my English.

The GTX 760 is quite a powerful card, but I don't reckon that your CPU will cause too much of an issue, but I cannot confirm this.

If you're planning to buy a CPU in the future, an i5 or i7 Haswell CPU wouldn't be a bad choice. Or in fact, if you're on a budget and you just want a good value CPU, the FX-8320 and FX-8350 offer good performance in games, so neither would be a bad choice. And I believe that the next gen AMD CPUs will be rather expensive as I've seen on the web, but you can only wait.
