I5 760 @ 3.6 ghz with a GTX 770 bottleneck?

Im looking to upgrade my computer to have a GTX 770, and i was wondering if it would bottleneck my computer? Thanks for any help :)
P.S Who people who are wondering i have a 750w PSU

  1. The GTX 770 would indeed be limited by your CPU performance.
    The best choice IMO might be the recently released GTX 750 Ti, or another card that some users here might recommend.

    I've seen it, im just worried that i wont be getting good performance, i want to be running ARMA 3 and other games on standard + on minimum 45 FPS without frame-drops
  3. It will bottleneck, but it is better then going for a 750ti. Get the 770 (or 760) and a new CPU later.
  4. It might a little, but I'd still get the best GPU you can rather than taking 'baby steps' as suggested above. Buy it right or buy it twice.

    I'd take the GTX 770 and then upgrade the CPU and motherboard later down the line.

    Thanks dude, ill probably do that, could you suggest how much of a frame drop I'd have until i upgrade? I'd hopefully run it on very high, and some AA, and normal its 63 FPS

    Arma 3? This might help you out. http://www.techspot.com/review/712-arma-3-benchmarks/page3.html

    Bear in mind that the GPU benchmarks are with an i7 4770k, and the CPU benchmarks are with a GTX Titan. Arma 3 is very demanding.

    So would you said id be getting around 30 - 40 FPS with frame drops on very high

    I think that the Arma 3 cpu bench helps prove that the i5-760 @3.6 will be just fine with a 770. There are always games that are cpu-bound, but your i5 is still very good at that clock. Notice the i7-920 @2.66 on that Arma 3 bench? Your cpu @3.6 should beat it (unless Arma uses more than 4 threads, I haven't looked into it). Anyway, I'd get the 770 and worry about the cpu later.

    Yeah, good point, i never noticed that :P TBH, that bench mark is with a titan and on ultra, and i dont want it run it with either settings so i might get high also, but thanks dude :) Any other opinions before i close the thread :)?

    Every single game I own (NFS;MW, Beamng.drive, planetside2, minecraft, kerbal space program and others) are limited by my 870. It just doesn't have the single-core speed I need. Even 4Ghz with my cpu equals a new 4670. I can not stream, record or encode while I am playing games, but my CPU isn't at 100%.
