Is my CPU bottle-necking my GPU?

Hello,

 

I am going to be getting a ryzen 5 2600 to pair with my 1060. I have looked up performance videos and it performs pretty good. Then I saw someone say that the CPU is getting bottle necked because of the GPU. Is that true? I don't think so but want to find out. When I get the 2600 I was planning on OC to 4.2ghz too.

That CPU will not bottleneck that GPU. Just make sure you have dual channel RAM (2 seperate sticks) of DDR4-2666 or faster to get the best performance out of it. It really helps.

 CPU: I9-7900X RAM: 64GB (16X4) DDR4-2933 GPU: PNY RTX 2060 MOBO: ASUS X299 Deluxe PSU: Corsair RM850 SSD: ADATA XPG SX8200 PRO 1TB HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB Case: Corsair iCUE 465X Cooler: Corsair 280 AIO

check if there is one

you don't claim bottlenecks without looking at usage

CPU is capable of more performance than the GPU, which is fine.  There is no perfect CPU/GPU balance point.

no, you can probably use up to a 1070 ti without any bottlenecks on a majority of games
