Every PC has a bottleneck, its the weakest link in a PC.

Say I had an i3 processor and a GTX690, the GTX690 would be held back in games by the i3 because it cant push as many frames per second as the GTX690.

An i5 could keep up with the GTX690, but lets say we have that an only 2GB of RAM, the RAM would hold both of them back!

My examples of balenced systems:

i3, 4GB RAM, up to a GTX570
i5, 8GB RAM, up to a GTX690
i7, 8GB RAM, up to GTX 690 Quad SLi


An FX4100 can handle up to a gtx 680 I'm sure.

What resolution you are at depends where the bottleneck is and it will also vary in different games. In a well balanced PC some games will be held back by the CPU and others the GPU, a PC with a bottleneck will always be held back by the same one.

The GTX650Ti and FX4100 are okay choices together when on a budget.

CPU:
*Note they rate the i3-3220 slightly BETTER than the FX-4100 and the cost the same:

*The HD7850 is a better value than the GTX650Ti. If you can afford it, this is an awesome card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Other tips:
- 64-bit Windows 7 or 8 (recommend Windows 8 + Stardock's Start8)
- 1155 Z77 motherboard (i.e. Asrock)
- 8GB (2x4GB) of DDR3 1600MHz
- 550W quality PSU (ensure proper 6-pin cables for graphics card)

*If you already have an older AMD motherboard then disregard my Intel advice.
