I currently have an Intel Pentium Processor G620 (3M Cache, 2.60 GHz) and am wondering
if that would be bottle necking my evga gtx 550 ti. It has been said that i should upgrade
to an i5 what do you think?

Hi and welcome to Tom's forum.

Should will do, if you have the budget for upgrade to SB go ahead and do it.

Depends on the game and the settings you use, but I'd say in general it would slightly. Since you have a lga 1155 board, I'm guessing an h61, getting an i5 would be a decent upgrade for you and you would notice the improved speed. Even so, if your current CPU is enough for the games you play right now then not much of a point in upgrading just yet.
