Hi guys! I just wanted to know if the "old man" Q9550 can still handle such cards like MSI R9 270x Gaming without major bottlenecks? Because I'm planning to give my old pc to my cousin so I'm deciding what GPU to buy for this rig.

C2Q Q9550 @ 2.9GHz
4gb RAM
500w PSU

It should be fine. The C2Q series is still decently powerful given it's age.

R9 270X or GTX760 is as high as I would go and both needing some CPU OC to be used fully in some newer games.
