If he is buying prebuilt make sure the PSU is big enough! | Report abuse jimmysmitty CPUs Master April 15, 2012 10:15:47 PM Depends on the game. Most games will work prefectly fin on that CPU. I have heard BF3 in MP though likes more cores. Still overall it will be a good system. Just make sure he has a PSU that can support that GTX570. | Report abuse ihatehismap April 15, 2012 10:57:51 PM Best answer selected by ihatehismap. | Report abuse Anonymous_26 CPUs Expert April 16, 2012 2:25:47 AM I really don't think you're going to have to much of a bottlenecking problem with I5 and the GTX 570. | Report abuse Mousemonkey CPUs Authority Graphics card Master April 16, 2012 3:54:01 PM This topic has been closed by Mousemonkey | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>Question about bottleneck> Related ressources: ForumQuestion about Bottleneck with upcomming GeForce Titans Sli ForumQuestion about a bottleneck .
