More about : amd 3870k gtx 680 lethalsam June 4, 2012 7:26:59 AM Yes an APU (A8) will bottleneck any high-end GPU.. what in bloody hell were u thinking pairing an APU with a GTX 680 Score 0 teh_gerbil a b U Graphics card a b à CPUs June 4, 2012 7:27:36 AM Not likely, at least at most resolutions you will hit 60fps or higher on maximum settings on all current games. As most games are highly gpu dependent you will enjoy your gaming for years to come.. Enjoy!
