You have flawed understanding of "bottleneck". There is also always a bottleneck in any system, bottlenecks are only a problem when they are on the extreme ends. In your case, in most games you will be GPU limited, in other cases you will be CPU limited.

Lmao thats a literal pile of trash

 

Youll get garbage performance anyways but most likely gpu bottleneck cause that athlon prob performs similarly to a c2d

For what? Gaming? mspaint? For a basic word procesing and some low quality video playback machine it should be barely acceptable. It wont be a smooth experience at all whatever you do.

WOW I hope you didn't pay much for that pc dude :(.
I used to have that same cpu and at the time of release was a very good budget cpu (cost me £40 at the time new), used it for many years and I shelved it about 6 years ago when I upgraded to a fx4350 and asrock extreme pro mb.
Was a massive upgrade!!!!
I still use the gfx card that I brought bout 8 years ago and used with the x2 250.
Hd 5870 with custom artic twin acerrlo cooler i got off ebay £46. Its a proper boster of a card if you ain't pixel hungry 😛.
The gt710 is a pile of shite from what Ive heard, my 1 gig ddr5 12/13 year old card would easy out perform it except in newer games which no longer provides drivers :(, everything that's labelled gt is not a gaming card, they are low powered versions, the gtx is for gamers
Im still using my hd5870 but upgraded whole pc few months ago to a i7 4790k/ asus z97-k/ 4x4gb matched vengeance ram (£123 bundle) off ebay and that is massive upgrade over my 4350 build. Slapped on my old trusty frio twin 120mm cpu cooler i used on my fx 4350 and it runs sweet as a nut!
I'm not a massive gamer and only play old skool games (mainly Total war games :P) but I think your gonna have a horrible time with that setup in 2022 man 😞
I used a cit sauron case £40, can fit 8x120mm fans, my old skool case was antec 900 and I think much better case for airflow

I can't recommend this case enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
