Would this CPU: AMD A8-5500 APU with Radeon HD Graphics, at 3.2ghz would be bottlenecking my EVGA Geforce GTX 660 2gb DDR5 GPU? Im playing wow and getting like 60=70 frames in some places. and certain games feel sluggish. On Windows 8 btw

Ok, is it just the GPU isnt all I thought it would be :l I can play bf3 pretty easily on lowish settings with good frames, and WoWs like 6 years old..

Simply because BF3 and WoW are more CPU dependent than GPU dependent.

Your CPU needs a big overclock or replacing.

WOW is heavily intel biased.

are'nt the trinity APU's piledriver cores? I think they should handle cpu intensive games much better than what OP is stating.

They have no L3 cache, most games love l3 cache.

agreed but should it take that big a hit. It's a piledriver core @ 3.2 after all.
