Solved Possible Bottleneck? Tags: GPUs Bottleneck AMD Components Product Last response: August 1, 2012 3:45 AM in Components Share pcgamer488 August 1, 2012 2:27:06 AM Currently I have a AMD Athlon II x2 220 @ 2.8GHz, My GPU is a GT 430 and it doesn't really cut it with the newer games. I was looking at the GTX 550 Ti (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) and I was concerned about a possible Bottleneck? Thanks!

The CPU is going to hold you back quite a bit.
