It will bottleneck especially in CPU intensive games, in GPU intensive games it would be more minor
You could think about upgrading the CPU to an i5 ivy bridge in the next few months, like the i5 3350P in this post

if i were to play a cpu intensive game, how much of the performance would i loose?

That's hard to say, BF4 isn't out yet so I don't know about the full game performance (AMD's Mantle should also be with the game) so you should be able to play it comfortablly at high (no guarantees though)

Planetside 2 is extremely CPU intensive, I don't really know how well it would run for you.

Either way bottleneck or not, any decent card would smoke the gt 630 in performance many times over.

It will depend on the game that you will be playing. You might want to refer to this. It has an almost similar scenario:

On games like Battlefield 3 singleplayer and skyrim, it doesn't bottleneck. But on F1 2012, it does bottleneck.

+1 shit man, this is almost the exactly the same pc build as i have and it shows that ill get solid 80 fps on medium with bf3 and solid 70 fps on high with skyrim. cheers man
