Hey guys, I have a question. Long story short, I had a 2GB Radeon R9 270X video card that went dead a few months ago. I sent it back to the manufacturer (MSI), who then told me they were unable to replace it & offered me a refund. Right now I have a 1 GB Radeon 6570 in the PC now, & I would like to get an upgrade. So, I went over to Tom's Hardware to ask them what I could get for the amount that MSI was refunding me ($135). One guy mentioned that I could get a GTX 1050 Ti as it is relatively cheap and should work with my system (listed below). He also mentioned that I could get a 3GB GTX 1060 for a bit more, too. However, when I checked the specs of GTA V with my rig & the new video card I would like to get over at game-debate.com, their system requirements tool mentioned that the card will cause a bottleneck for my CPU. Same thing for the GTX 1060. I asked about this over at Tom's Hardware 2 weeks ago, but so far no one has given me an answer.
Is this true or is game-debate just erring on the side of caution? If it does cause a bottleneck, how much does this hinder the gaming experience? What other 4GB card can I get that won't cause a bottleneck for the same relative price? I could upgrade the CPU, but I do not have the money to do so.
