    at that low res you should be able to with the 650 card get most games playing at 30 frames or better. it going to depend on there gaming engine not your pc.

    No bottleneck?
  3. you could toss a 680 or high end video card the i5 not going to bottleneck the video card. the gpu the 650 will be frame limited by how powerful the gpu is.

    take a look at the gpu charts and the game benchmarks. you see the frame rate goes up on there test bed as you use a better gpu. the trick is is buy a gpu that has the best value for the money for the build bucks. most times you can get a better amd card for the price of a lower end nvidia. if your going to get a newer monitor and go to a higher video size in games i would spend a little more on the gpu.
