Your cpu won't be the bottleneck for anything that isn't a totally cpu-intensive game. m 0 l envy14tpe a c 78 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. m 0 l chuckcrowleysteak August 15, 2013 3:06:03 AM Thx guys, I appreciate all the info. I was just worried my cpu was a little old/outdated since iv'e had it nearly 3 years. m 0 l Sn1992 a c 406 à CPUs August 15, 2013 4:23:52 AM That cpu is great even if its old but its a great performer and is a better overclockr m 0 l envy14tpe a c 78 à CPUs August 15, 2013 4:36:17 AM chuckcrowleysteak said:Thx guys, I appreciate all the info.

You are good for years to come. m 0 l jessterman21 a b à CPUs August 15, 2013 7:04:04 AM CPU bottlenecking depends entirely upon the game. But short answer, no - that's in the very top-tier of gaming CPUs. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Am i bottlenecking my GPU with this processor?
