Will my AMD A10-5700 bottleneck the Geforce GTX 660 (nonTi)?

yes, your missing l3 cache with that cpu. games drop about 20% performance on that one aspect alone.

So my games would be noticablly slow? and would I be able to run my games on high with decent fps still?

If you want to play games with a discrete there really is no point in getting an APU. The APU is good enough if you are going to use the integrated graphics but if you want to use a discrete video card I would avoid the APU as the weak CPU core will bottleneck high end video cards.

I'm sorry I don't understand. Will it increase my FPS and be able to play on higher settings?

No. The APU has a weak CPU core and will bottleneck something like a 660 or higher.

Yep, APU's are generally designed for people who does not have any plans in getting discrete cards. But then again, you should have a decent frame rate it's just that .. You will not get the "fullest" power of the GTX 660
