Will my CPU be a bottleneck?

Okay, so first I want to say that I am not completely sure that I know what bottleneck means. I know enough to say that it limits other parts in your build performance wise. Anyway, these are my current specs of my build(not finished, that's why i'm posting this:lol: )

Intel Core2 duo E8400 clocked @3.0Ghz,
NZXT Hades - I know it's an old case but haven't got much money atm.
Mobo- Gigabyte-GA-965P-DS3
HDD- WD Blue 1tb (IF I can afford it)

What I want to know is, if I get a gtx 750 ti (most of my budget blown) WOULD it be bottlenecked by my CPU?

Any reply and I would be grateful, thanks. PS. I'm only 14 so don't have much money (got a paper round blah blah)

Your computer can handle the 750ti fine. If you can though, maybe see if you can't find a core 2 quad for cheap; they go for anywhere from 5-40 dollars used.

Would that fit my board? I'll try and find a cheap one if so

Yes, it should. What exact board do you have?

That's all I need. Yes, your board will support a core 2 quad. It should handle anything you put in it.
