I have a situation here and not sure how "bottleneck" works. My GPU died the other day and in the meantime i am planning on putting a cheapy in there, like $60 or so. Problem is I have a high end computer build and not sure if it is going to jack up the rest of the hardware in any way. Heres what im using:
Tt Frio CPU Cooler
6GB Corsair Dominator
Corsair 750W PSU
Cooler Master HAF X
WD 500GB HDD
Asus DVD Drive
...Hooked up to a 46" LED TV
If I put a really cheap GPU in this for a few months to save up for a nice GPU later, whats going to happen? Sorry Im naive to this.
You wouldn't be able to play the newer games at high settings, but you will be able to use your computer, no doubt about that
Your TV seems to be big, so I guess the resolution will be big as well, so it would be too high for a $60 card to play games. You could lower the resolution and details and have quite playable framerates.
Other than games, you should be fine.
Your TV probably has 1080p resolution,and there are no $60 cards that can handle game fine on this resolution.You have to lower the resolution in order to get better FPS but the image may look blurry.
