Will an athlon x2 265 bottleneck a HD 5770

Hello,
basically the question is the title. I ask because this is what the computer I currently have is running. I do also have the GPU overclocked if that makes a difference:
Clock speed is 950MHz
memory clock is 1300MHz
fan (which doesnt matter)is 75%

Thanks for the help and input =D

  1. What resolution do you use?
  2. Without knowing the resolution we don't know how hard your working the GPU, hard to determine a bottleneck. Most games will run well, but that dual core is going to struggle pulling smooth frame rates in some quad core optimized games like Bad Company 2 or GTA 4.

    some games yes, some games no,, it is a pretty balanced solution,, more cores always nicer, however if that's what you have, you will be fine with that combo,,
    I have a triple core 445 paired up with a 460GTX, it does not bottleneck the GPU at all or at least not appear to and the 460 is much more powerful than a 5770 and I moved up from a 6000+ CPU (3.0 GHZ dual) and other than the encoding and multitasking,, i don't personally notice a HUGE difference from the 445,,
  4. the res is full HD 1080p
  5. a 5770 will have a bit of difficulty gaming at 1080p even with a high end CPU,, may wanna back it down to 720p,,, even on a 1080 panel flatscreen, it will look fine.

    GTA IV is more like a poorly ported console game which you need a quad core CPU to make for the fact that it is a poorly optimized game for the PC in order for the game to run decently.
