Gtx 650 will bottleneck?

ok i have
windows xp 64 bits
core 2 duo e6750 @ 2.66
6gb ddr2 ram
and pci e x16 slot
365 HP branded psu

Will gtx 650 non ti bottleneck my cpu at 1280 x 1020 resolution latest games
i will also buy this

More about bottleneck
  1. Lol, I think you may have forgotten to post your CPU
  2. ok i edited it
  3. It will be fine
  4. u sure?
    anybody else?
    and also will it work with my already 365w?
  5. People will tell you to steer clear of Coolermaster PSUs (very poor reliability). GTX650 has a 65 watt TDP - shouldn't be a problem.
  6. and also my cpu wont bottle neck?
  7. Your GPU won't be massively overpowered for it if that's what you're asking. Since you game at low res, more will be on the CPU than at higher resolutions. It's absolutely fine though. GTX650 is comparable to a Radeon 4870, which was around in that same era.
  8. so i should only buy gtx 650 not new psu?

    No one said that....

    Pay attention now... Your CPU will be fine with the 660. so long as you but a new PSU.
  10. Yeah interms of wattage you're probably absolutely fine, but you'd also need a 6-pin power connector from the PSU (you may not have one) and it's also possibly not a very reliable unit. Hard to know if it's just HP branded.
  11. ok anyway i will buy 6-pin power connecter 500w psu and a gtx 650
    to run
    gta five?
  12. also tell me more about bottleneck
    if my cpu bottlenecks it will stay like it forevr

    No one knows what kind of specs GTA 5 will require at this time, but I can say you should at least be able to run the game with a GPU like the 660.

    As far as the CPU, like I said, no one knows what the minimum system requirements are, but I would recommend trying to get an upgrade for it though.
  14. Bottlenecking is term thrown around far too much, and often by people who don't really understand what it means. A bottleneck is basically the point in the system that constrains performance. Like how the neck of a bottle, being the thinnest point, is the part that constraints the flow out liquid out of the bottle. If your CPU is underpowered relative to your graphics, it won't be providing data fast enough, meaning your system is CPU bottlenecked (since the GPU could run faster if data was being provided more rapidly by the CPU). A system will always have a bottleneck - some component must constrain framerates. The goal is to make the GPU that bottleneck, so it's performing at its full potential.
  15. u cant fix if the cpu is bottlenecked?
  16. You get a faster CPU.
  17. +1
  18. like?
  19. Core i5 3570K if you want to overclock and have a decent budget for it. i5 3450 if you don't overclock. You'll need a new motherboard like the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 motherboard. And DDR3 RAM.
  20. Also you won´t be able to play the latest games on Windows XP, might as well upgrade
  21. You will get the most value for your money by buying a new system.
  22. All games are different. So while one game may hit the cpu so hard to can not feed the video card data fast enough, another game may hit the video card so hard the cpu would be waiting.

    I do not think it will be too bad with a 650 as it is a mid end card.

    An image of the power supply sticker can go a long way.

    The important part is in red. If you have one rail, we need its rating, with 2+, you need the combined(not a simple add operation). Why a 300 watt power supply? because I had one handy to take an image of :) This little thing even has the 6 pin PCI-E plug.
  23. anyways i will be buying gts 450 and 500w psu and overclock gpu

    Do not buy a 450
