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 :)

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

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
