    Yes the i5 bottleneck this beast even my i5 3350p bottleneck my 770 a bit actualy the i5 takes full perfom of it but it overheat and the usage is always while gaming at 100% so to your issue you will need at least 8 ram for this gpu yes a new cpu and a new mobo also in game debate it says this gou need 750w psu
  2. thank you so i need a higher processor and mobo? which should i upgrade first btw?

    and will it remove spike lags? im on a budget right now so what mobo and processor to buy to match with my vcard

    For mobo can't say but you need to buy both you can't get a new mobo and put the old cpu in it unless the mobo is old tho for that gpu fx 8350 or i7 4th gen
