Could someone look at my build and see if a 780Ti would get bottlenecked?

I can't figure out if I need to upgrade my CPU along with my GPU. The Wattage is....750? I think

1) You don't really need to upgrade unless you are trying to run Crysis 3 or something
2) No you won't see that much of a different (2-3 fps) in games. That processor is still pretty good.

Awesome thank you!

I was actually looking to get ready for The Witcher 3. That's why I was thinking about upgrading. But yeah, someone on here said there's no point in buying a graphics card for a game that hasn't been released yet. Whew.

Oh and if you're right and your PSU is 750 watt then that's more than enough for a 780ti.

I never understood buying a new graphics card for a game that isn't out yet, unless it's on sale or something. Just wait until something better comes out closer to release date.

Did you buy a cpu cooler and are going to over clock the processor? You don't have to but i don't see why anyone would buy the top end gpu and not oc their cpu.

If that is your intention, you're right in thinking it would be best to wait. The 800 series should be out by then and perform much better than the 780ti in that game.

An oc to 4.5 ghz on the processor would show more than 2-3 fps gains. I wouldn't trust oc on air. I don't know what I am talking about though so let him spend $700 and not get the best out of the 780 ti.

you sure don't cause you'd get a better boost of preformance if you just oc'd the gpu but keep going with that logic.
