Simple as the title, if I have a pc using an Athlon ii x2 dual core CPU and a GTX 460 graphics card, will the gtx 460 be bottlenecked by the cpu?

Some added info, at both resolutions of 1280x1024 and 1920x1080 is what I'm asking about.

It depends on the games you are playing.

Then yet, it probably would. Not to say it wouldn't work, but you would have to turn down some settings.

Not what I asked. And you can still play many games on dual cores.

from what i heard most games will run on a dual core. battlefield wont it hardly boots on most dual cores but you should be able to play most on lowest, heck i play most games maxed out on a phenom triple core note its not a phenom II just a phenom triple core 2.1ghz cool thing is you can easily and cheaply upgrade assuming your mobo isnt like mine and will only use the processor it shipped with.

before i got my triple core i had a laptop with a single core 2.1ghz and i played all games on low but it ran star craft 2 and borderlands 1 surprisingly at 20 ish fps

Well, if you are playing multiplayer, it should go alright. Dual cores are not obsolete. I run a Celeron G530, and that thing plays almost every game I've tried to throw at it thus far.
