Will 6850 be bottlenecked by E7300

Sir,My present build is as follows:- :pfff:
E7300 2.66GHz overclocked to 3.33GHz
4GB DDR3 @1333MHz
HD 5670 @ 870/1125
18.5" LCD @ 1366x 768

I am planning on buying an XFX HD 6850/GTX 460 :p .My question is will my CPU be much of a bottleneck at the current rig?
Thank you in advance :hello:

More about will 6850 bottlenecked e7300
  1. yeah, either of those would be bottlenecked a bit. Depends on the game for how much.

    not every case.

    Is most case, your CPU is enuf. and 6850 at least can double the fps from your current setup.

    JUST Be sure,

    Is your PSU supply enuf power? 500w recommended. Push your e7300 to 3.8Ghz would be nice.
  3. it really depends on the game.
    cpu heavy games will suffer (still be playable at lower settings though) and gpu heavy games will do fine.
  4. Thank you all...But i can't go past 3.33ghz coz of mobo restrictions and cooling issues.I am currently playing syndicate at constant 60fps on this rig(5670) but i don't feel any slow downs..How do you all "FEEL" bottleneck :sarcastic: .Sorry maybe ques is noob but.. :pt1cable:
  5. hd 6850 will be ok with your cpu no need to get worry it will botlleneck little bit in games such as syrim which uses cpu more then gpu btw you will be fine and all games will run fine just make sure that you have a good psu of 450w with 1 pcie connector.:)
  6. dont buy these gpus wait for the new ati 7xxx and nvida 6xxx gpus which match up with ur budget butttttt if u want more performance get a quad core cpu
  7. With your CPU overclocked as it is you'll be fine, but your monitor resolution is pretty low. If you have no intention of upgrading it or the CPU any time soon you might want to consider an HD 6770 or GTX 550 Ti (and save the money). At your resolution you really don't need better.
  8. 7850 is out in the market !
