CPU and GPU huge bottleneck?

I have M4N68T-M-LE-V2 Motherboard, AMD Athlon II X2 255 CPU, i'm planning to buy GT 1030, will there be a "pain in the ass" bottleneck? can i play 2017 games on it?

Thanks in advance :D

(i don't play on 1080p and i'm on a very tight budget)

  1. CPU is way too low power, in this setup, CPU will be the bottleneck for sure. Also 1030 is not near sufficient to 2017 new games. 1050 or 1050 ti is minimum requirement now.

    phenom ii x6 1100t is the best for you MB, but still very old, in my opinion not worth going with, ~$160 for refurbished.

    Your call. You may be better off with Ryzen 1200 + new mb + 8gb ddr4 for around $240 but with much better capability :)
