  1. Every processor will bottleneck a little bit, but some more than others

    at lower resolutions your processor will bottleneck your GPU but will still be playable
    and at 1080p you should be fine and everything will be playable, only about 2-5 fps difference.
  2. hey i forgot to mention my screen resolution is 1600 x 900. . . :pt1cable:
    "only about 2-5 fps difference" diffrence by how can you pls explain bro. . . :o :o :ouch:
    some of my freinds are saying to change the proxy n get 3rd gen of intel i5 with suitable mobo. . . :p
  3. You shouldn't be bottle necked especially if your playing 1600x900, If you where playing at 1080p your FPS would only be about 2-5 frames slower than if you were playing with a better CPU that dident bottleneck your GPU as much

    the i guess am clear to engage in gaming with my current config n upcoming GTX 670. . . ?? :bounce: :o :ouch: :pt1cable:
  5. hey brother can u suggest me a good PSU for that or my Corsair CMPSU-700GUK 700 Watts PSU will be enough to handle it. . . ?? :o :o
  6. try the i5 2500k or the 3570k they are both very fast, and better.

    bro you know i cant really change anything like every now or then for fun or like for very little diffrence. . .
    i will change the prcsr n mobo only if it makes a big diffrence in gaming. . .
    so does it. . .

  8. your psu is enough for you computer, but if you want more power buy 900w antec o 850w corsair.

    You haven't thought of going for a HD6870 or GTX560? They're about the price u're looking at? Someone else could correct me but they seem to be decent enough?
  13. @15k you will get a gtx 660 would considering maybe no bottleneck at all

    But s/he only has about 7500 at the moment, would an HD6850 or GTX 560 not be a better option in that sort of price range?
  15. he has 15k with him

    So at half price an HD6850 or GTX 560 would not be worth the money or the silicon the board is printed on? :(
