What graphics card will bottle neck this CPU? I currently am going to install a eVGA 560 ti super-clocked and am wondering if i will bottle-neck. Yes, I do know that a GTX with an AMD CPU is not preferred but it is what it is.


Computer Specs

8GB Ram

1TB Disk Space

GTX 560 TI SuperClocked

AMD Athelon II X4 650 Processor 3.20 GHZ


"Edit had 650 instead of 560"

Best solution

Did u buy the card already? If not, you can always try and send it back if it has too much of a bottleneck! Personally, I think that your athlon mabe have a bottleneck..

I have an AMD Phenom 9950 X4 @ 2.6GHz, very old processor, which bottlenecks my GTX660..
I am getting a 3.4 Ghz AMD Phenom II X4 965BE. And this card isn't even a Ti.

But then again my old processor is 2.6GHz.. And it is a pretty big bottleneck, 40-50% gpu usage in games, so I'd say: Try figuring out yourself a bit. I am almost sure there might be a little bottleneck

Note: Phenoms have L3 Cache, Athlons don't!

I had a type that said 560. Now I assume I wont have a bottleneck but atleast I know the limit to my CPU now. Probably somewhere around a 660 ti.
