    It bottlenecks my FX5800 Ultra.
  3. It's not as simple as yes or no. In some scenarios you will be CPU bottlenecked. In others you will be GPU bottlenecked.

    Basic rule of thumb if you have a balanced system then:

    - where it matters you will always be GPU bottlenecked
    - where it doesn't matter you will always be CPU bottlenecked.

    Btw there is no better gaming CPU you can buy.
