Thanks I ran MSI Kombustor in a stress test I got this in the test. My gpu is running at 99% so this means that it's not bottlenecked then right?
Again thanks for the advise.
But as I said, it depends on the particular software/game. If the game itself requires a lot of CPU, then you might still be bottlenecked because there's not as much performance to spare to keep the GPU fed.
For example if I run the benchmark in Shadow of the Tomb Raider I can see that for most of the benchmark, the frame rate is limited by the performance of my GPU. But in some scenes the CPU is too slow to keep up and my performance drops because the CPU is now suddenly the limiting factor.

So can my gpu get bottlenecked in one application and on another one it can run at 100%?
I'm pretty happy with my first build. It's been running fine for 3 years or more thanks
Absolutely. The CPU has to both run the game's code and supply the GPU with data. If the game is more demanding CPU wise, it may not be fast enough to handle both, while games that require very little CPU on their own can do just fine.
