I have an Nvdia Geforce GTX 560ti card. I also have a Phenom II Black Edition X4 965 with 3.4 GHz true Quad-Core Design. Does my CPU bottleneck my card? Let me know if there is anything else you need to know. I also have 4 GB of the latest RAM.

hmmm not sure. Just in general I guess? For most games? If it doesnt work like that and I have to choose say MW3 and BF3.

MW3 will be fine. All of the BF3 CPU benches I've seen show that it's fairly well optimized for any quad-core, but I hear it takes a hit in multiplayer and people have to OC even 2500ks to get it smooth. Can't say for sure, I don't own it.

You have no issues at all with that set up enjoy your gaming

You're fine. The Phenom may be old but It's still more than capable. There's a big chance that your CPU is multiplier unlocked so overclock it to 3.8/4.0 ghz and you won't notice any form of a bottleneck with that GPU. BF3 pushes even the fastest quad cores so don't worry about that, as long as it can pull 40 minimums (which it will easily) there's no need to worry.

Not trying to destroy your forum. I am wondering if my phenom II X4 965 ocerclocked to 3.93GHz bottlenecking my AMD 7950 880/1250 even if I wanted to overclock, will it bottleneck it? Just an similar question but higher card.
