More about : cpu bottleneck ati 7850 EzioAs a b à CPUs February 14, 2013 10:43:05 AM Based on Tom's Hardware's Gaming CPU Hierarchy Chart, the CPU is quite weak for gaming nowadays. I imagine it'll bottleneck the 7850 substantially in most games. icemunk February 14, 2013 10:48:32 AM That would definetely bottle neck the CPU. I would upgrade to a newer CPU for sure. A nice Phenom II X6 would make quite a nice difference. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
