Hi, i just bought a gtx 650 but i have an old intel i3 540 so its bottlenecking the hell out of it.

would you recommend me a cheap processor that can run the gtx 650 NON-ti without any issues?

i was told that an intel i3 2100 will solve the problemat all, is that true? cuz i spent all my money on that card so i only can afford a cheap processor.

thanks.

at the moment i have

intel i3 540
gtx 650 non-ti
psu 500w
4gb ram
ASRock hm55-le (wich im gonna replace also)

that will do the job just fine, while keeping costs fairly low. what PSU are you running? also something to consider looking into (personally i would reccommend a 650W+ with a bronze (80% efficiency) rating)

Do you have evidence of CPU bottlenecking?

hey, today i bought an ASRock H61M-VS motherboard, so i only need the processor...... will that i3 2100 run my card at 100%? even tho its dual core?

my psu is a kemex 500w bronze i believe. plus i ran the newegg's psu thingy and it said 380w including the i3 2100.
