Hello and thanks in advance. hopefully this is an easy question. I'm just curious as to whether my GTX 560 will be a significant bottleneck to this system.

Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: Some components purchased, rest will be purchased today

Budget Range: 600-700 for all components except GPU

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, note I run a 2 monitor set up and always have a second program running, (streaming [go!] or watching movies)

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: All execept GPU and Monitor

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts:

Location:Calgary Alberta

Parts Preferences: I like Intel and nvidia

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: No

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1200 second monitor is 1680x1050 but i will move to a second 1920x1200 soon

Additional Comments: I have done my research and am pretty confident with my build. The issue I run into is i got a gtx 560 for Christmas and I'm worried it will be the bottle neck on the system

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: It is time to upgrade. I am noticing slowdowns on games like GW2 and Planetside 2
