Solved Will the CPU and the GPU bottleneck ? Tags: New Build GPUs Bottleneck CPUs Systems Last response: September 16, 2012 1:03 PM in Systems Share EacieQ September 15, 2012 12:38:52 PM More about : cpu gpu bottleneck Best solution burgessanthony September 15, 2012 1:45:51 PM I would be confident that that i3 will not bottleneck the 660Ti. Having said that, strategy games with many things happening on screen and BF3 multiplayer like 4 cores, HOWEVER, my mate has an i3 with a GTX 670 and its a great machine. Share ScrewySqrl a b à CPUs September 15, 2012 2:19:09 PM I would suggest an i5-3470 and a GTX 660 would be a bit better balanced. Not as fast in some games, but better in BF3 multiplayer, Civ 5, WoW and other multi-core games m 0 l Related resources Will my cpu bottleneck my gpu? - Forum Will my CPU bottleneck my GPU ? - Forum Will my GPU bottleneck my CPU if I overclock? - Forum Will this CPU and GPU bottleneck? - Forum Are my CPU and GPU going to bottleneck? - Forum Can't find your answer ?
