Mostly it won't but only in CPU intensive games, an i5 CPU is really recommended with this card for the best performance

I run a very similar rig and I don't get a bottleneck when I play games. I get around about 40-60fps on high on Fallout 4. PAYDAY 2 runs on max settings at 60fps. I haven't really tried gaming on anything too demanding as of late so I cant give you too much info on demanding games :/

Seems like you already got it? It's suited for 1080p gaming, can run even newer titles on high-ultra, I hope you enjoy it!
