Will it Bottleneck

Hi, i've recently been looking to buy a budget Gaming PC, and but since i don't have much or any knowledge of computer hardware and was unsure whether or not the hardware i've been looking at would "bottleneck". I have other options from the same builder but the main difference is the graphics card, which is why i'm posting in under the Grapics-card part of the forum.(I'll move it if i shouldn't have made this here) Here's the components for you:

Motherboard:Asrock Z97 ANNIVERSARY ATX

CPU:Intel core i5 4690K

RAM:2*4GB Kingston Hyperx Fury

Graphics-card:Geforce GTX960 2GB OC (I honestly have no idea what that means)

SSD:Kingston 120GB Hyperx Fury

Harddisk:1 TB Harddisk

 

Thanks in advance, i'd also like to know if any of the components are outdated. Enjoy your day. (Or night)

Your machine should handle itself quite well for everything thrown at it at 1080p. 

 

As you can see in my signature, my machine is like yours, only 16 gigs ram, else cpu and gf are one generation older 3570k and gf 760 2 gb. the I5 runs with 4.3 ghz boost clock. Yours should be able to runs above 4 ghz as well if cooling is potent enough (no stock cooler).

 

I for example play witcher 3 with all bling without any performance issues. 

Main System:

Anghammarad : Asrock Taichi x570, AMD Ryzen 7 5800 @4900 MHz. 32 GB DDR4 3600, some NVME SSDs, Gainward Phoenix RTX 3070TI

 

System 2 "Igluna" AsRock Fatal1ty Z77 Pro, Core I5 3570k @4300, 16 GB Ram DDR3 2133, some SSD, and a 2 TB HDD each, Gainward Phantom 760GTX.

System 3 "Inskah" AsRock Fatal1ty Z77 Pro, Core I5 3570k @4300, 16 GB Ram DDR3 2133, some SSD, and a 2 TB HDD each, Gainward Phantom 760GTX.

 

On the Road: Acer Aspire 5 Model A515-51G-54FD, Intel Core i5 7200U, 8 GB DDR4 Ram, 120 GB SSD, 1 TB HDD, Intel CPU GFX and Nvidia MX 150, Full HD IPS display

 

Media System: Asrock ASRock Z87 Extreme4/TB4, Intel Core i5 4460, 16 GB Ram DDR3 1600 ADATA XPG, 1 275 GB SSD, 4 Seagate Ironwolf 4TB HDD in raid 5, Gainward Phantom 560 GTX (the 560 will be replaced with one of the 760 due to better effeciency)

 

(Abit Fatal1ty FP9 IN SLI, C2Duo E8400, 6 GB Ram DDR2 800, far too less diskspace, Gainward Phantom 560 GTX broken need fixing)

 

Nostalgia: Amiga 1200, Tower Build, CPU/FPU/MMU 68EC020, 68030, 68882 @50 Mhz, 10 MByte ram (2 MB Chip, 8 MB Fast), Fast SCSI II, 2 CDRoms, 2 1 GB SCSI II IBM Harddrives, 512 MB Quantum Lightning HDD, self soldered Sync changer to attach VGA displays, WLAN

If by outdated, you mean 2 generations behind CPU wise and a generation behind GPU-wise then maybe it is. The 4690K is an old ish CPU with only DDR3 capability and won't exactly have all the new features. The 960 is in short, crap nowadays, it only has 2GBs of VRAM which isn't even enough for 1080P nowadays and it's meh in terms of performance. I'd say you use everything else but upgrade the GPU or build a whole new one if you need a new platform (Z170/Z270)

I have a 6600k with a 1070 and I am just straddling the line, meaning I defiantly wouldn't get a 1080 for concerns of bottle neck. If anything the 960 would probably be holding the system back a bit. Idd look at a 970 if possible because that's probably the lowest for solid performance in modern games.

The hardware is a bit 'last gen' (2014), but the CPU shouldn't be a bottleneck.  What is he asking for it?

He is asking 7.395 kroner or 1.166,39 USD. Although it has other other "Quality's" that i didn't mind mentioning as it shouldn't have an effect on the systems "Power". It should also be noted at as i live in Denmark i've notice part costs being more expensive.

I'm unsure what cooler is used, and i play in 720p

720p ... ok then you definetly don't need to upgrade... 

 

And any better cooler than the one packaged with the cpu is nice.

Understood.  That seems a bit high for me, but I'm not sure what the relative cost is for a high end system in Denmark (import taxes and stuff).  It would be okay for what you need to do but I think you may be able to do better for less.

Just curious, see if CyberpowerPC ships to you, and what this would cost after shipping/tax.  You don't necessarily need to buy their PC, but I'd like to know where the bar is set.

I've looked at it and it's about 300 dollars less, but it comes without an operating system. And frankly don't know how to figure that out. I'd also like to see the computer before i buy. And since the builder is located in Denmark i would have a much easyer time holding them accountable for lackings. This is a small thing but i like the peace of mind.

You can add Windows 10 to it if you want on software&accessories, but alright, I can understand that.
