New Card Setup Quick Question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Alright Im thinking about buying this card:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814161372

But was wondering if my CPU in my system is going to completely bottleneck it.

Edit: I am buying a power supply also

There will be slight bottleneck... Nothing to worry about, you won't have to overclock much to get optimal performance...

My problem is I dont think I can OC as i am on ASUS Bios. Would it be safer just to upgrade CPU?
