Will my core-i7-920 be a bottleneck?

Just now, Pizzapaz001 said:

I'm looking to play these games at 60hz at 1080p.

No bottleneck then. And don't run FO4 over 60hz since the physics engine is highly dependent upon the frame-rate.

I am thinking about upgrading my graphics card to a RX 470 but I'm not sure if my core i7-920 at 2,66 ghz, 4 cores with hyper threating will be a bottleneck.o.O Or at least a noticable one. Sadly my motherboard doesn't support overclocking so that isn't an option. Iam looking to play recent games like Fallout 4, Just Cause 3, Bf1 and Rise of The Tomb Raider. 


Thanks in advance,:D

What frame-rate? 60hz? Not a chance.

144? Maybe but get the best you can afford unless you want to change your system.

Likely yes. Your i7 is slower than FX6 CPUs and the 470 performs like a 970

The i7 920 is a good enough CPU and it will be fine running a RX470.
