Am i bottlenecking my gpu in any way? More about : bottle necking gpu Reply to chuckcrowleysteak Best solution Vulpes vulpes a b à CPUs August 15, 2013 1:08:29 AM Nope but when in doubt check the anandtech benchmark comparison of that chip with, lets say, a i5-3570k since it's the most popular on newegg.

Your cpu won't be the bottleneck for anything that isn't a totally cpu-intensive game. Reply to fudoka711 envy14tpe a b à CPUs August 15, 2013 2:24:42 AM It's impossible to bottleneck a i7-2700 unless you had 3 GPUs then, mayb, a i7-3xxx would edge it a bit.
