I have a gtx 550 ti and I am looking for an upgrade and I found out my friend has a psu with 6 pin and I was wondering if my fx 4100 cpu will bottleneck an Asus strix 1050 ti? If I have to go out and buy an am4 mobo and a ryzen 5 or something to get all the performance out of it I can but is it worth it?
What games do you play? It will bottleneck the 1050 ti in many games, however it should still provide a sizable improvement over your 550 ti especially in older games or games that aren't that cpu heavy. I agree with the above poster I would get the gpu now then upgrade to ryzen later if you feel you want to.
