Bottlenecking: AMD Phenom II X4 920 and Geforce GTX760

I'm upgrading my old Geforce 9600GT to a GTX760 and I would like to know if my PC is going to handle it without much bottlenecking.

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 920
Motherboard: ASUSTeK Computer INC. M3A78-EM (AM2)
RAM: 8G Dual-Channel DDR2

I don't have much money, so I won't buy a new CPU/motherboard for now.
Please, give me details if you can. Thank you.

  1. a 760 will not bottleneck anything, nor will anything bottleneck it aslong as your psu can handle it. anything above the 760 will be bottlenecked, but i think the 760 is a great upgrade for you :D

    Thank you! I already checked my PSU, so that's not a problem :)

    Could someone teach me how to discover if it's going to bottleneck or not?

    well, you can google around for some benchmarks, and see if anyone else has a similar build. when you do get it, you can check the cpu and gpu usage while gaming, and if the cpu usage goes above 90% while the gpu usage isnt, then the cpu is a bottleneck, and vise versa.
