is this a bottleneck?

Hello, I ran BF3 with my

EVGA GTX 750 ti FTW w/ ACX Cooling
and my
AMD A10-5700K APU

And here's the frames I got.

Ultra - 50 - 60 (53 Average) (random dips into the high 40's)
High - 60 - 70 (62 Average) (didn't notice many dips at all, except for when i died and got the redeploy menu)
Medium - 70 - 80 (Never really left that general area on medium, random spikes up into the 85 range and random dips to 65)
Low - Solid 85 - 95

Gradual increase in FPS as I lowered the setting, not a huge jump, but are the FPS stats characteristics of my CPU Bottlenecking my GPU? If so, would the card be bottlenecked by a A10-6800K APU (I plan to upgrade to this APU soon, because its the best CPU/APU I can get that will fit in my mobo's FM2 socket. If you guys know of any other CPU/APUs that are better than the 6800K and fit in a FM2 socket, plz let me know. :)

  1. Eh, it isn't really bottlenecking it. But it might a little since that is a demanding game.

    Don't get the A10 6800K or any apu for that matter, just get the Athlon x4 760K. Since you already have a dgpu.

    Whats the differences between the 6800K and the X4 760K? other than one being an APU and one being a CPU. overclocking for the 760K?

    The 760K is nearly half the price of the 6800K and also overclocks better.
