I have a amd A10 5800k
8gb Ram 1333mhz
120gb ssd
700w PSU
Monitor: 1366x768
I have a plan to put a gpu for my rig like a gta 450 so I can get higher FPS on valorant but when I check on a bottleneck calculator they have a bottleneck % of 81.5 on 1366x768 they always recommend to go on 1080p resolution to reduce the bottleneck but I don't have a budget to buy a 1080p monitor and I don't like overclocking. What should I do to reduce bottleneck on other way?

But....
The framerate mostly comes from the CPU. Not the GPU.

CPU provides the framerate.
GPU provides the eyecandy.

Put in a better GPU, and you will get the same framerate, just with better graphics.

OK...

That does not change the fact that you should not look at those "bottleneck calculators" for any upgrade advice.
At all.

Your limiting factor appears to be the CPU, and the relatively low amount of RAM.
Whatever different GPU you put in will not materially affect the framerate.
But is the gpu enough? because I only play valorant on my integrated I'm reaching 70-90 I wanna atleast to reach 100+ so I can catch up with most of the players .

The GTS 450 is a 12 year old device.
Is it 'better' than the integrated graphics in your CPU? Probably.

But you'll not get more FPS from it.
And btw I used a gts 250 on a a4 procie my fps increase around 10-30 maybe because the cpu can focus more on its role after I put a gpu

'bottleneck' simply means that one part of the system is not letting ohter parts reach their true potential.

When changing parts, it is entirely possible, even likely, to both increase performance and increase the 'bottleneck percentage'.

Those calculators are pure clickbait.
I still believe they also create bottleneck to make people spend more money
 
40 bucks. You might check out good will etc to see if you come across something like an old Dell mid tower with an i5 or i7. Some of those old office PCs you can add a half decent card and run decently. A few years back I bought a Dell optiplex used from my work for 50 bucks with an i7 3770 and 8gb of ram. Added another 16gb ram and an ssd, for home office use it runs great. Something like that and a power supply upgrade you could probably put a gtx 1060 or 1070 in and run a bit.

I also want to but I'm already too late. I spend over 140$ upgrading my rig from a4 4000 to A10 5800k 8gb Ram 120gb ssd gts 450 and still using a generic
