Computer-Upgrade

I know how to build a computer and how it runs but I need more knowledge on "bottleneck".

OK, I am getting an GTX 560 (not Ti), into this system:

Motherboard: p5g41c-m lx

RAM: Kingston 4GB DDR3 1333mhz

GPU: GTS 250 (upgrading to GTX 560)

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 6850 (I'm pretty sure this CPU will do nicely, also it is better performance than the Q6600)

PSU: 550 Watts (I might get a better brand like Corsair or Antec)

OS: Windows Seven Ultimate

All I need to know is the GTX 560 will be a suitable upgrade with this specification?

Also If it will "bottleneck" the system tell me why?

Thanks I hope this is specific enough...

mostly if you are playing high resolution gaming, cpu isnt a factor by large.
don't go with the non ti version, its a real downgrade.!!
else if you cant afford the ti version, just get a 6870

and it will not be a bottleneck at all.

OK, thanks for answering my question.

I know that the GTX 560 is way better performance than the GTS 250, because I can run games mostly on high settings and about 45fps average on the GTS 250 such as Dead Island and Rage. But on a small resolution like 1024x800.

Will the GTX 560(not Ti) will perform better fps and also will be good for Skyrim with the resolution on 1280x1000?

"Great 1920x1200 performance in most games"

It will do really well at 1280x1024 resolution as well.
