it might and it might not
I'm gusseting it will be cutting it close at best

grab msi Afterburner
start up you favorite high end game and shut off vsink
msi Afterburner will show your gpu usage, if it's low and you cpu usage is high, then you have a bottleneck

TBH if you can, overclock your cpu to around 3~3.2ghz
that should help a lot. if you have the money I'd get a better cpu. I'm sure you could get one cheap online

If there is any, it would be very slight. What if there is a slight bottleneck? Would you rather have a slower graphics card? What resolution is your monitor?
