there will be a CPU bottleneck but it will work. Honestly, what games are you playing? they may benefit more from spending the same cash on a CPU upgrade, the gtx275 is already cpu bottlenecked. On the other hand, if you want to play crysis 3 a dx11 gpu is manditory, so then upgrade the gpu.

Thank all of you for the feed back. I do not want to up grade the cpu on a 775 socket. In the future i will be building a better rig. This is just to get me by with dx11. I have no problems playing any of my games until i down loaded crysis 3 without reading the requirements for the game smart.
