I have a CPU: AMD 965 Phenom II BE 3.4 and i can OC it to 4.0ghz with my KUHLER 620 liquid cooling system, RAM: 8GB 1600, MB: MSI 970A-G46, PSU: OCZ 600watt, and just purchased the GPU: GTX 750ti SC edition. I know a GTX 760 would bottleneck my current CPU but what about this smaller cheaper version GTX 750ti? I will be upgrading months later to an INTEL i5-3570k which i know will handle the GTX 750ti fine without any bottlenecking but i was just wondering for the mean time until then or if the upgrade from my AMD 965 Phenom to INTEL i5-3750k is even much an upgrade and worth it for strictly GAMING and CONVERTING MOVIES to burn? By the way im chose the GTX 750ti GPU because im a MODERATE GAMER on a BUDGET and the GPU fits my GAMING needs. P.S. I'm upgrading from a GTX 460 so i feel i'ts a big upgrade to me with LOWER power consumption. Thanks!!!

It depends on the game, and the settings:

Bottlenecks for Beginners
THW is always in need of bottleneck explanation, so here is my take on the subject matter. Your "bottleneck" will be dependent on the software you run and your display. For gaming: Your CPU handles the game engine and will be able to make a... See full content

My bad i forgot to mention i currently play on 1400X900 display and maybe later when i get more cash will upgrade to a 1920X1080p TOPS. My games are all no more higher than Metro 2033, all Call of Duties and lots of F2P games FPS like WARZONE and SOLDIER FRONT. I don't play Battlefield and i only play FPS games.

A 750Ti should very easily maximize 1400X900. You could even drop down to the GTX 750 (non Ti). Your GTX 460 should handle that resolution already. But since you already purchased it, why not run your game and give us the information :D

Yea my GTX 460 handles my current games on STEAM quite well on med to high settings on 1400x900 display. I bought the GTX 750ti SC because it was on sale for $139.00 with $20 rebate $119.00 and i wanted to go up higher on my games settings to ULTRA or HIGH but with more FPS. I do get some lag on METRO 2033, Ghost, and Black Ops 2 on my GTX 460 right now. Plus i like the fact the GTX 750ti doesn't use any 6 pin connectors and smaller profile for my case. Thanks for your quick responds DAMRIC. Much appreciated. ;)

The 750ti isn't really that much faster than a 460 though?! I'm not sure you're going to get that much benefit tbh. The 750ti is super efficient so it will probably run quieter at least.
