How much of a bottleneck would my CPU be for a GTX 760?

Hi,

I have the system as following:

AMD A6-3670K
Jetway A55 Motherboard
Corsair CX600M
8GB RAM
MSI HD 7770 Power Edition

So,

1) How much of a bottleneck would my CPU be for a GTX 760?
2) Will it harm the 760 in any way (as i'm planning to get an I5 4570 later down the road)?

Cheers :D

slight bottleneck, not the end of the world though, and no harm or damage being done.

When you get that new CPU, it won't matter. Either way, the 760 with your A6 CPU will still give you much better performance then 7770 anyways, go for it!

Really? Just a slight bottleneck? Some of my friends even called me crazy for pairing a low end APU with GPU like that. Lol

Anyways, my CPU is equivalent to an athlon ii x4 640 AFAIK (looking on some benchmark) that might help you to reconsider your statement. :p 

I'm not disbelieving you or anything, i'm just curious how in the world could it be possible. :D

It'll most certainly bottleneck, but it is nothing absolutely huge, though it is a reasonable amount, but even with the bottleneck you will get much better FPS with that then your 7770. If you overclock your APU, you will reduce the bottleneck.

I5 2500k will work a treat with the 760
