Will an AMD Phenom II 955 @ 3.2Ghz bottleneck a GTX 760?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Last week my PSU died and took my video card with it. (It was an AMD 6950)
To replace it, i'm considering a GTX 760.

My question is, would my CPU, a Phenom II 955 clocked at 3.2Ghz be able to keep up with the faster GPU?

OC it up to 4ghz and if you use 1080p screen you will be fine with 5/7% bottleneck

Depends on the game really. Bf3, no, everything else, most likely.
