Will my CPU bottleneck my GPU?

  1. I have an Intel Core i5 4590 CPU, and I just bought a MSI GeForce 750 Ti online, and it's currently being shipped. I'm afraid that such a high-end GPU will be bottlenecked by my stock CPU. Should I get a new CPU, or will it run games such as GTA 5 at full settings? Thank you!

    The 750 Ti is not a high-end card. It's a nice gaming card but definitely not high-end. Your CPU is fine.

    Best high-end low profile GPU. Small form factor sucks haha.

    Ahh, still yet your CPU has plenty of power to keep up. In fact in comparison for gaming the CPU is high-end.

    I have an older core2 extreme processor (QX9650) running 980tis and have no noticable bottlenecks in any games. And like others have mentioned you do not have a high end GPU dont be fooled by the ti. For me if it's less than a x70 (eg 770gtx, 970gtx etc) then it's low end :D.
