Bottle necking my GPU?

So, I'm looking into getting a GTX 760 in the coming days. Now, currently I have a AMD FX-6300 CPU in my computer. It's meant for gaming, recording and rendering (Fraps and such.) I was just wondering if my CPU would bottle neck the new GPU at all? In terms of gameplay, I guess I mean. I'm aware it's not the best CPU, and it's no Intel, but it's worked so far.

The FX 6300 should be fine for that card. If you ever find it lacking, it is a great overclocker as well.

It depends on the game. What games are the biggest concern to you?

If you need to ask in what game then its NOT a bottleneck, a bottleneck would apply to a graphically intense games just as much as CPU intense.

Any OP, No, there will be no bottleneck.

@expl0itfinder I'm not too familiar with overclocking, so, I've been a bit hesitant to try it honestly.

@cuecuemore I'd say the newer ones coming out. I still play lots of the games out now, though. Like Sleeping Dogs, Crysis 3, GTA 4, Borderlands 2 and others of the such.

Ok, bunch of nonsense in this thread (as usual). The only game I have experience with from the ones you listed is GTA 4, and it could bottleneck, not because the 6300 is a bad CPU, but because GTA 4 is a horribly optimized game on PC.

I've heard it was, and experienced that. Sadly. I enjoy it, but the lag or hiccups I get is kinda annoying.

Let me explain this to you.

1. What is a bottleneck?
A bottleneck applies to a CPU not being fast enough to tell a GPU what to do.
That means the CPU is holding the GPU back.

2. In the case of a CPU intense game its not a case of the GPU being help back but an INADEQUATE CPU speed, this is not a GPU bottleneck, but a bottleneck in THAT game.

Does this make sense to you?

Keep in mind the OP is asking about an inherit HARDWARD, not a specific game bottleneck.
