Im in tight budget this is my story
My pc now is old
Intel E5200 Dual core
I change my gpu from 8400SE to GTS 450(i upgrade this for my gaming)
And i upgrade my junk psu to FSP 500 watts ( so that it can run my GTS 450)
PS: my reason for upgrading i5 2500k is my pc lagg and can run only is LOW settings
So now im planning to upgrade now this is prefer
Intel i5 2500k
A 4gb ddr3
Z68 or p67 MOBO
And i will get my from my old pc EVGA GTS 450
And my FSP 500 watts to my new pc build.
Is intel i5 2500k is compatible with EVGA GTS 450 with no bottleneck?
If i have that new pc rig i put this game
JUST CAUSE 2
Can run that with no LAGG AND BOTTLENECK? I play that in HIGH SETTING?

Your GFX card would be limiting the 2500K, not the other way around. Also, why not a 3570K?
You could play those games at medium to high depending on your res.

core i5 2500k is quite powerful cpu for gaming, may be the best (cpu) performance for money. the gts 450 will become bottleneck long before 2500k does.
Im upgrading to i5 2500k
Gtx 460 bottleneck

That gpu is really low profile man, if you want a cheap, good gpu try a gtx 460 1gb which is around 120US. Good luck

I watch youtube videos that i5 2500k and GTS 450 is good like GTA IV CRYSIS they have no lagg at all at max settings

There is no limit for a 2500K. It's all in the GPU.
Ask a new question
Will This Bottleneck?
