Will an Intel Core i3 3220 bottleneck a Radeon 7850?

Hey there!


Like what the title says, will an Intel Core i3 3220 bottleneck a Radeon 7850? I'm looking for something to replace my current GPU (which sucks) so I can play games like BF3 and Crysis 3 on Medium-High settings at 720p. Your replies would be much appreciated.


Here are my PC specs:

Intel Core i3 3220 Ivy Bridge
Asus P8H61-M LX3 PLUS R2.0
4GB 1333mhz Kingston Value Ram
500 GB Seagate Barracuda
Nvidia GeForce GT 630

    @720p you likely wouldn't be bottlenecking too bad...though in some CPU heavy games you'll see diminished performance. I recommend a quad core over a dual core for gaming any day.
