Hello I'm a newbie in building computers. I want to buy a Sapphire AMD Radeon 6670 HD GDDR5. I just want to ask if my AMD Athlon 7550 Dual-Core Processor ~ 2.5 GHz will be a huge bottleneck in my new graphics card. I also have a 2 GB ram.

More about : cpu bottleneck gpu

well between the athlon 7550, 6670 and 2gbram, you have a very low end system and you will stuck playing 10 year old games, newer games wont run well, if at all. Just save your money until you can build a whole new system.

LOL. I can open all new games using this old processor and using a old graphics card. I'm just asking if the CPU will bottleneck it or not and especially i'm on a tight budget.

your Cpu is an Ancient one...HD 6670 GDDR5 is Good for 720p gaming on Low to medium detail, it will bottlenecked by your cpu when play some newer games

ok, your cpu isnt quite as bad as i thought, its about on par with a core 2 duo and it looks as though it can overclock quite well. It still isnt good for recent games, but you should be able to run slighlt older games like fallout 3 or the original crysis pretty well. I have an old core 2 duo e6600 OC'd to 3.2ghz and an 8800gts as a second pc hooked up to my tv, which runs fallout 3 at high detail at 1080p very well, so a 6670 is a good amount better to my 8800gts. You really should get another 2gb ram and OC the CPU to see reasonable performance though. So you will probably be able to run less demanding games ok. just dont expect it to run skyrim, crysis 3 or metro very well at all.

ok i'm not even planning to play crysis 3 and metro adn even the games that is cpu intensive and a have a high gpu requirement so thank you for your answer MASTER iam2thecrowe :D 

Also I want to ask if game-debate.com is a accurate website for distunguishing if your pc meets the minimum requirements or recommended requirements or if not it does not meet any requirements. Thank you :)
