I am thinking about purchasing a Radeon 6870 and was wondering if it will be bottlenecked by my cpu. I don't play any FPS or games like Skyrim. I just want to be able to play games like Swtor, GW2 and Diablo 3 at high settings at 1920x1080 with good fps. Thank You.
It won't "bottleneck" it (meaning your CPU won't negatively impact the performance of your GPU), but some games may want a quad-core, in which case you might see lower framerates. Check the minimum and recommended requirements for the games you play and want to play to see if you need to upgrade.
