Would Nehalem bottleneck a GTX 780?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Curious.. I want to upgrade to Haswell, but I want new video card(s).. I have the cash in hand for a mobo+i7 4770k or the gpu right now.. just don't know which to get. I was curious though... if I got a gtx 780 would it run at max potentional? I have a 4.1ghz overclock and it could go a little higher.

I game at 1080p and the only upgrade to monitor i would get is a benq or asus 3d one.

You'll be fine with that i7 OC until you upgrade to Haswell. I'm sure you'll see improvements in some games when you upgrade, but a 4.2ghz Nehalem is definitely enough to power a 780 for most games.
