I am going to buy a geforce gtx 660 ti graphics card, i am using a amd 245 ii x2 proccessor and i have been told this would cause bottlenecking of my graphics card, if i were to upgrade to the AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor would bottlenecking still be a concern?

With the Phenom II X4 965, you shouldn't worry about *bottlenecking*. It's capable processor and if you wanted to, you can easily overclock it. Hence the "black edition".

Edit: Make sure you motherboard can have a max TDP of 125 watts in order to support the Phenom 965.

*heh sorry, put overclocking there instead of bottlenecking, apologies for that mistake :lol:

Yeah the overclocking completely confused me, and i thought i may have misunderstood what bottlenecking was, haha, it's all good :D 
How would one go about figuring out the max tpd of watts of their motherboard? Here is a link to my motherboard if this is of any help at all. http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...

It will work just fine with that motherboard.
* on a side note, I think that's the third time I seen that motherboard in a thread just for today.... Is it really that popular?
