Do I need to buy new CPU to avoid bottleneck GTX 780 ti?
Jun 11, 2014, 10:57 AM
I spent time searching here but only saw "K" models and 4000 series, not actually sure about the difference in 3000/4000 but anyways
Would my i5 3470 3,2ghz bottleneck a single GTX 780 ti? Do I need to buy a new cpu? Which one? Or am I fine with my amazing cpu? Some games it might bottleneck?, Thanks!

No it won't bottleneck a GTX 780Ti.
Your cpu will allow your gpu to run at its max potential without itself struggling.
You are fine with your current cpu.

You should be fine with a single high end GPU and your i5.
