More about core 2100 bottleneck 285
  1. It should be fine, 285 is not type of card that get bottlenecked by i3.
  2. i3 will defenitely bottleneck the 285 slightly

    you need a decent i5
  3. Depends on the game, more CPU heavy games it will.

    btw. graphics settings make no difference to CPU performance, only GPU performance (except for physics settings).

    if you upgrade to a 4970k then the bottleneck you mentioned will sure be gone and you will get what a 285 has to offer
