Hello, i need some help as i have heard about this term called bottle necking the GPU.

I have a Intel Core i5 2320 @ 3.00 GHz code name Sandy Bridge

and i am getting a EVGA SuperClocked w/ ACX Cooling 02G-P4-2774-KR GeForce GTX 770 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0

Am i going to bottleneck my GPU?

The i5 should be fine with the GTX 770.

Depends on how you define "bottlenecking". If youre talking about getting any amount of frames less than you would with a faster CPU then yes. But I consider a bottleneck to be when you lose a significant amount of FPS like 20-30% or so. Itll also depend on the resolution youll be playing at. Thats kind of a slow CPU but its still a good one for IPC so Im gonna say youll be fine. You will be losing out on some performance if you had an overclocked 2500K up around 4.0 or so but youll still get very good performance out of that GTX 770 and should be able to play pretty much everything out right now at max or near max settings. Wouldnt be a bad idea to start saving up a little for a i5-2500K and then overclocking it some. Would make a difference in your rig's overall performance.

Alright thanks for the response , i understand it a bit better now, and i think when i upgrade the CPU i might just go i7 to future proof.
