How much will an i5 3350P limit me in terms of GPU upgrades?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
With all the new GPUs dropping, I'm interesting in upgrading my ol' 660.
How good of a GPU can I upgrade to before I hit a bottleneck? I'll be playing at 1440p/60hz and 1080p/144hz.

I'm interested in the GTX 1070 or running dual RX 480s.

I personally dont recommend dual gpu setups. im running one and its a pain in the ass. alot of games just dont run well with it. I say a 980ti if you can find one super cheap, or the 1070 ( though id wait a bit for the prices to even out ) not to sure what you mean for bottlenecking, im assuming lower frame rates then you want consistently? a 980ti or 1070 cant be at those performance points really, they are really high end cards haha.
