    to a certain level, yes, a CPU is important for gaming, and your CPU is well inside that level, so you can pair that CPU with that GPU and it will not bottleneck it. If you didnt buy it yet, go with the i5-4460 a bit faster and with better cooling system.

    Why? does it have a bigger heat spreader or something?
  4. because its an haswell refresh, and intel changed the internal cooling system of haswell CPU's with haswell refresh.
