My system is
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 2.5GHz
4GB DDR3 RAM
And an EVGA GTX 580
700W PSU

Am I being bottlenecked really hard? I got the GTX 580 as a gift to replace my old GTX 260.

It is will bottleneck but not a huge bottleneck.only mainly in cpu intensive games.you can easily overclock that cpu to increase fps.

Just get a Hyper 212 Evo and OC it. Shouldn't be much of a bottleneck

Would you consider Far Cry 3 a CPU intensive game? It's quite laggy on my system.

No, FC3 is a GPU intensive game. Cpu intensive games are mostly multi-player online games.

At the wrong settings, FC3 will lag on just about any system. I have SLI GTX 680s and still turn some settings down to run smoothly.

GTX 580 is fine. It's just a question of experimenting with the graphics settings until you find the ones that allow your system to run it smoothly.

Yes i think so far cry is demanding game though untill i have not played it but also crysis 3 will be most demanding game ever.
