Will a Core i5 650 @ 3.20 ghz bottleneck a GTX760

I already have an Intel Core i5 650 2 cores, four threads @ 3.20 ghz and upto 3.33 ghz with turbo boost and i wanted to buy a gtx 760. will this cpu bottleneck my New Gpu.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cpu: Intel Core i5 650 @ 3.20 ghz and upto 3.33 ghz with turbo boost

Ram: 4GB 1333MHZ

Psu: 320 watts for my cpu and an external FSP Booster X5 450watts independent/supplementary power supply for the "GTX 760" Only.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I dont have enough money to buy a new processor.

Also i wanted to know if it will bottleneck, by how many fps will i lose when i play a game like Crysis 3 and Battlefield 4 on ULTRA with FXAA with 1920x1080 FULL HD.

I cant overclock my cpu because my computer is an hp oem pc locked.

I have a motherboard with LGA socket 1156 and max TDP of 75 watts. give my a CPU upgrade suggestion for $150 or should I keep my CPU because it's very difficult to upgrade.

Thank you :)

  1. your CPU would perform close to an 3ghz Sandy i3 I expect

    at 1080p I wouldn't think you would experience a CPU bottleneck though I suggest avoiding the 64man extra large maps since those are pretty CPU heavy

    Also getting 8GB will be helpful

    The 760 will only put out enough for 1080p high/Ultra
    In fact I suggest maybe a 7950, same price but better bf4 and crysis performance



    Also consider getting an 600W PSU by itself instead of getting an booster
  2. well those games are all fully threaded games. so a dual core cpu will struggle in those titles to even match an AMD FX chip.

    yeah... for crysis3 or bf4 your cpu will be a bottleneck. otherwise it should be fine.

    Esp in multi player, in single player, it should be enough
