Bottleneck question

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So, Newegg has their presidents day sale and they have the EVGA 1070 FTW edition for sale.  I have a Gigabyte Z77 D3sh Motherboard, with 8gbs of 1333 mhz ram.  My CPU is a Ivy bridge i5 - 3570k overclocked to 4.2 ghz.  My current graphics card is a GTX 960 2gb and was thinking about upgrading to the 1070.  I understand I wont encounter bottlenecks at 1080p 60fps.  But I'm thinking about buying a 144hz.  so will it bottleneck or should I be fine with this processor?

At 144Hz, yes. At 60Hz, why would you buy a 1070 for that?

Probably will, but the i5 3570K will be able to hold its self well. No reason why not to try it out, if its inadequate you can upgrade the CPU later.

The 1070 is a good card for the price, so why not?  I just wanted to know if my i5 would be bottlenecked.  Is that in most games or select games only?

It would bottleneck it in most games....
