Is bottlenecking harmful for the computer

Nandu
 Share

I decided to buy an intel core i3 8100 and use it with 8 gigs of ram AND A GTX 1060.

Sure it will be a bottleneck but is it harmful for the graphics card as i will be upgrading my cpu to an intel i5 8600k after some time.

Im from India and here everything is priced with huge  $#!T tax and going with an i5 8600k will ruin my budget

The only thing being harmed would be your experience. Otherwise nothing will get hurt by doing so.

This shouldn't really present so bad a bottleneck, and in lots of games it probably won't bottleneck at all

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad
