How badly will this cpu bottleneck 560 ti

I have a phenomx2 550 black edition overclocked to 3.6 ghz and was wondering how badly it would bottleneck the card.

  1. It shouldn't, or at least not much.
  2. someone explain bottleneck

    So with an x2 250 AMD 3.0ghz, what's the fastest card I could realistically get ?

    AMD or nVidia?

    Bottleneck in this case is used to describe a game being limited by a CPU instead of a GPU.
  4. A 560 Ti would be perfect
  5. A nvidia 580.

    CPU bottleneck isn't as big a problem as you would think.
  6. It depends on the game. A lot. What games do you want to play?
