It really does help if you ask in the format in the thread about how to ask for advice

But generally your answer is no , it wont be a problem
It will perform very similarly to much more expensive processors at 1080p resolution
and at lower resolutions it will still perform well enough to give you higher fps than your monitor can actually display

why would you buy a Phenom II processor?

Piledriver is out you know.

I agree with you completely , except that the Phenom is sometimes available at very low prices and the OP seems to be buying on price

i agree. a budget, country and what you will be doing with the computer would help people give you better suggestions.

As a 965 Owner, with a much older Video card (Gtx 460) I can tell you that the processor is a beast for its age & price.
Whether or notthe CPU bottlenecks completely DEPENDS on what you are running. Some PC games are CPU heavy, others are GPU heavy. I personally have been playing Planetside 2 in its strangely unoptimized state, the CPU is the source of my bottlenecking even with high settings. But in games like BF3 or COD, its my GPU.

As a side note, be aware that the stock cooler in this thing is pretty loud when it gets up to speed.

True that. I have a 955, which I assume has the same stock cooler. Sounds like a jet engine.

Definitely recommend you get a different CPU cooler.
