Hello community. With Kepler coming here and releasing these amazing cards, i feel like its time to say good bye to my gtx 560. Im planning on upgrading to a GTX 670. I have a couple questions before i upgrade.
My current CPU is an i3 2100. Will any bottleneck occur in games such as battlefield 3 and skyrim? im planning on playing them on 1080p ultra.
If bottleneck does occur, how serious is it? im on a budget, and if its a significant bottleneck, then i might be able to spare the cash on upgrading to an i5 2310. How much will that help? Will there be any further bottleneck?
My current PSU is a 600watt Corsair Builder Series. Will that be enough to handle the new CPU and GPU???
It's not worth your while upgrading only for an i5-2310. If you're going to upgrade might as well get a 2500k and overclock it a bit. If you can't afford it, I'd save and wait for next generation or something like that...
Won't be a next generation on the LGA1155. Haswell will be out in 2013 on the LGA1150 socket. I agree with Jerred, now is the time to upgrade the CPU. At the very least an i5-2400. Although the 2500k is the best way to go.
