Possible bottleneck with HD7850 ?

Hi , I thinking about getting a new GPU , the ASUS HD7850 DUII Version and I was wondering if I'll lose much performance because of my cpu . I currently have an i5-650 .

Thanks for your time :)

  1. An i5 650 should not bottleneck an HD 7850 at all. The 650 has very similar performance to a new i3 2100.
  2. one thing overlooked, what does your board support in terms of sli/xfire you. You might wana get another 7850 down the road.
