Im building a pc. I was considering the 1060 as the gpu but im seeing second hand 980 sell for the same prices. My question is that will the G4560 bottlneck the 980?

    yes

    1060 > 980
  2. Well those new Pentiums are hyper threaded so it should do better than Pentiums of old, but yes it will likely bottleneck both of those cards to some degree in some games.

    yes

    i knew that it would create some bottleneck here and there. But the better card today is the GTX 1060? :)

    i was looking forward to a reply like this. If you can make an estimate, how much bottlneck would there be? a lot or just a little?

    I could maybe make an estimate in a specific game. But no not as a whole, it will entirely depend on the game.

    I'll maybe play GTA V, Assassins creed series, CS:GO, maybe overwatch. Also the RE7 if it can run it. Can it run RE7? Lol

    gta5, ass creed games, and re7 are super cpu bound

    simply adding in a 1060 will let you play them yes, but not very well at all

    re7 minimum intel cpu = i5-4460

    So i should get a higher cpu for these games?

    LOL


    most likely not





    In fact by the fps looks like he has a gtx 1080, or has reduced settings
  11. So he has a 1080 or a 1060 (on a lower setting) and the processor is most likely not a G4560 too is it?

    cpu compatability depends on your motherboard
  15. So i've found another video, hopefully this one is not fake or maybe it is idk lol https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAMSUIENyVI he says on the desc i3-6100 and 1050ti.
