Im thinking of buying a used computer, and the one i've been looking at has an i5 760 paired with a GeForce GTX 570. So seeing as the GPU, from what i can tell, is alot better than the CPU, will the i5 bottleneck the GTX somehow? Or will the GPU reach its full potential even with a CPU of this quality?

That used to be a pretty good CPU in its day, which wasn't that long ago. Was a great overclocker.

No it would not Bottleneck the GPU at all, its powerful enough for the GPU to stretch its legs.

You may need a bit of an OC for large BF3 maps multiplayer, but stil a great CPU. If the PC is a good price. Go for it.
