Wondering if cpu will bottleneck gpu

So here is my situation at the time of buying my gaming "rig" I wasn't very educated on pc building. I used an fm2 socket mother board and I bought the best cpu for that socket which happens to be the AMD A10-6800K cpu. I know this is not the best cpu and not very good at all. So I am now going to upgrade to a NDIVIA gtx 660 ti GPU because before I had a AMD 6670...Bleh. I am wondering if when I get this graphics card will my cpu hinder the performance of my gpu, I dont really feel like switching out a new motherboard just to play the latest games.

1920x1080 single display

games I want to play
Battlefield 4
Cod Ghosts(Eww right? xD)
Dayz


Thank you, Lucas

    You could have got the Athlon 760k, its the same a10-6800k without the iGpu.
    You are already buying a dedicated gpu
  2. No it wont going to bt. It should balance out just fine:)

    so I got integrated graphics right? Would their be a difference in performance if I got the athlon 760k?

    intercrated gpu isnt meant for gaming, i think what he wanted to say is its no point to pay extra for apu if you allready have dedicated gpu

    Yea for now you are good with that cpu and gpu.
  7. Not only is it fine, you now also have a good backup GPU if your dedicated GPU stops working or if you have given it for RMA and takes months to return. It's never a harm.
