Will my CPU bottleneck GPU?

My processor at the moment is an i5 650. I am looking to upgrade to a gtx 770 or 780 but I am not sure if my CPU will bottleneck them or not, I have no idea how to test this so plase help, thanks.

    You put them together and see whether the cpu gets to 100% usage before the gpu.

    A new i5 should be OK. Not so sure about an old one.
  2. I would recommend upgrading to get the most out of it. A 760 would better suit that build you are going for.
  3. I wouldn't pair that CPU with anything beyond an R9 270x.
