Will my graphics card and cpu work together, or will it bottleneck?

Hi everyone,

So I want to buy a new graphics card, but i'm not sure if it will work with my current CPU.
We're talking about the MSI N760 TF 2GD5/OC and the Intel I5 750 here.

I hope you could give me some insight on this.
Thanks in advance

    http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i5-750-vs-Intel-Core-i3-3220 - it's a pretty weak cpu, but should still run your gtx 760.

    Yeah i know it's a bit out dated, but i can't afford a new one at the moment.

    Also, is a gtx 760 the same thing as a MSI N760 TF 2GD5/OC?

    Okay, but i have one more question:
    It will work, but will it actually improve my performance and increase fps in gaming?
  4. You haven't said what you're using at the moment and your build isn't in your profile.

  6. It'll kick the HD5700 butt. Make sure it'll fit in your case and that you've got a good 500+W power supply.

    Next - get 2 x 4gb ram - I'd get 2 x 4gb 1600 per http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P7P55D/specifications/

    Thanks!

    I have a 620 power supply so thats no problem.

    Also, is it could my current motherboard run with my processor or do i need a new one? (possibly the p7p55d)
  8. http://ark.intel.com/products/42915/Intel-Core-i5-750-Processor-8M-Cache-2_66-GHz The i5 750 is lga1156 per your motherboard. So they should work together.

    Ph dang, i meant to ask:

    Will my current motherboard run with the the graphics card i had in mind (MSI N760 TF 2GD5/OC)
  10. Yes - it has a pcie2.0 x16 slot

    but... it needed two slots right?
  12. No. it uses just one, but takes up two expansion slots - the cover plates at the back of the PC.

    Ahh okay good.

    So in theory I could just stick it in without having to upgrade other parts of my pc, and it will work fine?
  14. It needs to fit in your case and you need to have a good quality 500+W power supply - from tiers 1, 2a or 2b of http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1804779/power-supply-unit-tier-list.html
