Ewww..... Poor choice tbh.... that 1.2Gb VRAM the hard has will cripple you.

You will be fine, a little bottlenet but anyway im pretty sure u will be getting 50+ FPS 1080p any game, while later on you move on to a new CPU mobo, i will suggest to get the GTX670 or HD7950, you wont need GTX680 to play 1920-1080

The 768 Mb VRAM my GTX 460 had didn't cripple me and I don't plan on gaming at anything higher than 1920x1080.
Makes me happy!

My next upgrade will be a new CPU and mobo, maybe in a few months. I'm planning on a 2500k, unless AMD pulls a rabbit out of it's hat. smile.gif

It depends what game, My 550Ti gets bottlenecked by my CPU. If I run GTA IV at almost maxed out (at 1080p) my CPU usage is around 75-80% while my GPU usage is at 100% whereas if I run Crysis my CPU usage (again almost maxed out at 1080p) is around 45-70% where as my GPU usage at 100%. It also depends on the res you play at.

I think you are confused at to what a CPU bottleneck is... if you are getting 100% graphics card usage then you are not CPU bound at all.
