The cpu speed does not directly have any effects on gpu. However, when gaming or performing other heavy graphical tasks, a slower cpu speed will decrease the overall gaming performance of the pc and how efficiently your graphics card is utilized. In other words: Your graphics card will be waiting for your cpu to "feed" it. Remember that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link.
