I plan to upgrade to a GTX 650 Ti. I have a core i3 540 CPU clocked at stock settings (3.06 GHz). Will the i3 540 bottleneck the GTX 650 Ti?

Intel Core i3-540: http://ark.intel.com/products/46473/Intel-Core-i3-540-P...

GTX 650 Ti: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/GeForce_GTX_650...

Thanks in advance.

That completely depends on each individual game or program you run. If you play a really CPU intensive game then yes it could quite possibly bottleneck the GPU. On the other hand if you play a really GPU intensive game then the GPU could quite possibly bottleneck the CPU. Both are entry level components so they will probably work well together.
