Will my AMD A10 5800K bottleneck the 7950?

I bought this rig about a year ago as a budget gaming rig. And was thinking of getting this http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BXVFM3K/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER 7950. Will it bottleneck at all in most games?

  1. Yes compared to some other CPU's but it will handle it fine and you can always overclock to reduce bottleneck.
  2. probably, but not by so much that it will cause major problems. It would still likely outperform the a10 + 7870 combo so the bottleneck probably won't be that bad. especially if you don't mind trying to overclock a bit to reduce it.
