Bottleneck

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I wanna  ask about something, i have an intel core i7-4770 and I'm getting a gpu gtx 1660 super, i have 16gb ddr4 ram, will my cpu bottleneck badly or is it ok? I will be upgrading my cpu to core i7-7700 but I'm asking bout now till i upgrade it, will it be a bad combination for my current cpu and the gpu I'm getting? If so how badly will it act? 

Thanks guys.

It will be fine.

Why would you upgrade to i7 7700 from i7 4770? It makes no sense at all, you cant even use the same RAM and motherboard and you will barely see an improvement in CPU performance.

Depends on the game, res and expected fps and settings.

If its a cpu intensive game it may struggle.

Not really a worthwhile upgrade IMO, unless you can get the 7700, a motherboard, and RAM for really cheap. The 1660 would do just fine with that i7-4770.

i know i can't use the same ram , i will be changing the whole motherboard with ddr4 rams and the gtx 1660super  the only old thing would be the cpu , that's why i asked about the bottleneck , and the reason i'm upgrading to 7700 is the budget, can't upgrade to higher  , and i heard it's perfect match with the gpu and everything in my new upgraded pc , thanks for replying , it was great help , so you see that i don't change the cpu? wouldn't it make difference ?

The i7 7700 is not worth it at all. It would be a stretch to even call it an upgrade.

Save a bit more money and rather get Ryzen 5 3600 instead.
