how low of a cpu can i go with a
EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB Video Card
without bottlenecking im on a 600$ budget.
i already have the parts picked but the cpu, so that means im open for suggestions. BTW already have psu got a corsair 750 watt gold for 50$ on special.

By all parts picked out do you mean you have bought them already or just selected them as I believe the gtx 760 is much better for the money than 660 ti.

Reguarding cpu I would sugguest getting an i5 ivy bridge, but an i3, fx 6300, or phenom ii 945 BE would be as low as I go.

Best option would be a 6300FX in my opinion.

Oh and yes, DEFINITELY go for a GTX760 instead

I rarely recommend AMD CPUs these days, but the 6300 is a solid choice. I'd take one over an i3 for gaming. Especially. if you are willing to overclock the amd 6300 would be a solid choice.
