I'm using a gtx 460 se with i3-550 running at 1920x1080 res right now.
i wanted to upgrade that 460 se to a gtx 570. Will that cpu bottleneck the 570? and is it really worth it from upgrading to a 570? i'm playing bf3 btw and i can only get 30 fps on medium setting that's why im trying to upgrade my gpu. Thanks guy
From the benchmarks I've been reading BF3 does like lots of cores.That means you need at least a quad core to be able to produce good fps without bogging down the CPU.But it also seems the game is more dependant on GPU power than CPU.
As you can see here clock speed isn't much of an issue as long as the CPU is at least a quad core.
