Will I get any bottlenecks with my GTX 760 4GB?

Will I bottleneck my GTX 760 4GB http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00H707RP2/ref=pe_385040_30332200_pe_309540_26725410_itemmodel with my current specs?

Specs:
- i7-920 not OC'd although I could a little.
- Generic Motherboard (because it was store bought)
- The PCI slot is PCI 2.0X16
- 16 GB of RAM 1600Mhz Cas Latency 8 http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006YG9C6C/ref=pe_385040_30332190_TE_M3T1_ST1_dp_1
- 7200RPM boot and game drive
- EVGA 750 Watt Gold Power Supply
- Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Will I notice any big/noticeable bottleneck, I plan on playing games at 1080p 60FPS Ultra-High settings and games like BF4, Bioshock Infinite, Skyrim, Rust, Arma 3, Day Z, Garry's Mod, Minecraft. Battlefield will probably be the most intensive game I'll play, I'm not a big Crysis fan.

  1. Best answer
    No, there will be no bottleneck, and you could actually go for an even more powerful card without any bottlenecks coming from your cpu
  2. Why did you buy the 4gb version? The only point of the 4gb version is to SLI at high resolutions. If you are just using 1 1080p screen or don't ever plan to SLI then you wasted some money.
  3. That wasn't his question though, so the fact he has a 4gb is irrelevant to this topic
  4. But if he can return it and get a 770 for close to the same price or save money and still satisfy his gaming needs then it is very relevant. You can help people outside of their question.
  5. But yes, 4gb (or any upgraded memory variant of any video card) is only useful for high resolutions like 4k, or triple monitor gaming. You would be better off saving the money on a 2gb card instead of the 4gb, or go for the next gpu up if you can afford it.

    Thanks I think I will just stick with the 760 tho this is only a temporary build, I'm 16 with a job so I'm saving up to build a better rig this summer.

    I got the 4GB because I do have extra 1080p TV's that I might use and also BF4 recommends 3GB so I went with the 4GB
  8. Here's the problem though, a single 760 cannot be bottlenecked by its 2gb of stock VRAM, only in SLI do you need the 4gb. So if you recently purchased it you can return it and put the $60 bucks towards the new build, otherwise live and learn.

    I think you're right god damnit I should've gotten the 770, I didn't realize the price dropped that much, should've put in an extra $30 and got a 770. It didn't arrive yet, maybe I can tell amazon to cancel the shipment.
  10. Either way you can at least return it right away and get a better card.

    I just had amazon cancel it and ordered the Windforce 770 2GB thanks man :)
  12. No problem
  13. I have a 920 and an R9 290 and don't really get any bottlenecking, though I am overclocked. My motherboard is on the way out I think though, as it occasionally doesn't detect both RAM sticks, so that is the only reason I am contemplating upgrading. If that wasn't the case, I'd keep rocking this till at least broadwell, or maybe whatever is after that.
