This is my first time on this forum and also the first time that i try to build my own computer, so i am sorry in advanced if i created this in the wrong section!


I am currently using a desktop PC with:

- AMD Radeon R7 200 Series

- Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500 CPU @ 3.30GHz (4 CPUs), ~3.3GHz

- Asus P8P67LE


The current setup works fine but i wanted to buy another, stronger graphic card!

I had this one in my mind because it was recommended to me by some of my friends :

- Radeon RX480


Now the thing i am worried about is my processor bottlenecking my graphics.

If the bottleneck would happen which kind of a processor would i need ( minimum )?


Thank you for your help!
