Hey there, my pc's specs currently are:
AMD FX4100 quad core @ 3.6ghz (Not oc'd)
gx 550w 80+ bronze cooler master PSU
And i'm currently using a 7770HD gfx card.
I was wondering, How badly would a gtx 760 get bottlenecked by the rest of my PC? Thanks in advance - Sam.
While the CPU might not be able to keep up with the GPU at the same level an 8350 would, you shouldn't see a large difference in quality. It would be one of those things where you upgrade to the 8350 and you're like "Whoa, this looks better. I don't know why, but it looks better." That's how slight the change would be.
I look at it this way, that 7950 is proabably the best 7950 made, higher memory bandwidth, 3GB GDDR5 vs 2GB(760), very similar performance aside from games optimized for one company or the other(and the difference there is usually small), and I have a feeling a lot more games will be AMD optimized since both next-gen consoles use AMD, not to mention their PC architecture meaning games can now be developed side by side with consoles and PC's. Meaning no more crappy ports, thank God. And meaning a good chance for a lot more AMD optimized games, there are a lot now even. So yes I would say definitely get the 7950 Vapor-X
