There are a lot of factors to consider, but yes, you need a good CPU as well. A slow processor will not allow your GPU to perform to its full potential.

Balance is the key. If you have a fast CPU but a slow GPU, then your CPU is stuck waiting for your GPU to render a frame before it can begin work on the next one. If you have a fast GPU and a slow CPU then it's your GPU waiting to receive data from your CPU before it can do anything.

It depends on what resolution your gaming at.

If your gaming at a low resolution, the load is mostly on the cpu.

If your gaming at a high resolution, the load is mostly on the gpu.
