GTX 470 and i5 3570K: Will the GPU Cause a Noticeable Bottleneck? - Page 2

Thanks for the input. I was afraid the performance increase wouldn't be worth the money spend if the bottleneck was still noticeable. I hope I can actually play GTA IV with the GPU upgrade now.

If it helps, even my sigrig runs gta like garbage, mainly because the game is coded like garbage, it's been a game i've wanted to play with every card i've had but after awhile i came to the conclusion i would never play the game because it's badly coded wink.gif.

Just be aware everybody suffers with gta, as long as you can put up with teh poor performance you'll be ok, that game will destroy your 470 but do'nt be put off by that as it does'nt mean the 470 is rubbish, it just means gta coding is rubbish.

Thanks for the insight. I'm aware of the crappy performance people should expect from GTA IV. I hope to see some sort of improvement with a new GPU (such as, you know, being able to play the game for more than a few seconds).

The i5-3570k (i own one!wink.gif) is one of the fastest cpu today, so no gpu so far can bottleneck it!tongue.gif or even for a 10-15 yrs from now:D

If you wish to play all games from high to ultra settings in 1080p then grab the i5-3570k and GTX 560ti and fires away:thumb: this build is enough for a budget of <500 dollars and no noticeable differences against much more expensive build:p when you plan to OC then you need water cooling cause the ivy bridge is hotter than sandy bridge cpu's.mad.gif for water block choose XSPC rasa or raystorm;)

hope this will help you!smile.gif
