1050ti with A8-6500

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 500-164
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello! On Thursday, I will he ordering a GTX 1050ti (Single fan). My current CPU is an A8-6500 3.5GHz. I was wondering, how much of a bottleneck would I have? Will I get over 75 fps on medium settings on games like Overwatch? Please help.

I don't think you'll have any issues with that CPU.

It's not very clear what you're wanting.   I'd recommend checking the system requirements for whichever game(s) you are interested in playing and ensuring that you're well above that.  One thing that would improve your system speed greatly beyond this is upgrading your 2TB 7200RPM hard drive to an SSD of whichever quantity you like.

 

Also, I hope that the card you ordered is supported by the PSU in your tower.

Hi. I'm sorry for not being specific. Yes, the PSU will support it. I'm just wondering, how much will the CPU bottleneck the 1050ti? I won't be playing AAA games. Only e-sports games.
