    well due to this website an I5-6500 is the best match for the GPU, but this is an older i7 so check out these results http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i7-860-vs-Intel-Core-i5-6500 so its pretty hard to see how it would work if I where you i would contact Nvidia but that's tricky


    hope I helped :)

  4. It will work absolutely fine, no issues. Don't need an i5 6500 for this gpu. Any decent cpu works fine with a gtx 1050ti.

    It will bottleneck slightly in CPU intensive games. Just like a Phenom x4 965 will bottleneck. But not so much you'll notice it. You'll sure get A LOT more of FPS compared to a GT 730. It's worth the upgrade.
