I am planning to buy a new Gigabyte GTX 570 (OCED Edition) instead of my GTS 250.
My current specs are:
Generic 500W PSU (Will buy a SeaSonic 620W PSU with the GTX 570)
Intel E8400 @ 3.0 GHZ
Patriot 4GB 800MHZ RAM
Gigabyte Nvidia GTS 250 1024MB
Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD
Now, after looking in the web, I have seen some people talking about bottlenecks.. and it got me worried.
If I'll buy a 570, will I get a bottleneck with my current spec?
If so, what will this bottleneck do? (What kind of effects it has)
Will it be severe? (like massive FPS drops in games)
Also, if necessary, I game at very high resolutions (1920X1200) with a 26 Inch Samsung syncmaster T260HD (High resolutions are very GFX card dependent right?)
and before you say it (if you'll say it), unfortunately, there is no way for me to also change my motherboard and processor (I am planning on getting an I5 2500k in the future with a new motherboard and 8GB or ram, 2X4 kit)
