Hi there, this is my first time posting and I was wondering if you guys could help me out with a little bit of a hardware questions that I have.

My PC specs are currently:
  • CPU: i7-950 @ 3.07GHz (runs a little over that at times thought)
  • 12 GB of ram
  • MSI GTX 1660 Super 6 GB (I just bought this to upgrade from my GTX 1050 Ti)
I mainly use this PC for casual web browsing, media, music composition, and gaming. I was curious if you guys (who are more knowledgeable than I am) think my CPU is going to hold back the power and capabilities of my newly acquired GPU. I can't afford to upgrade this CPU right now since I just spent my money on the 1660 super (unless someone wants to trade for my 1050 ti hahaha just kidding). But if you think it is going to result in a serious bottle necking incident, then I can look into saving up some money and upgrading my i7 950 in the future. Thanks again for any help that you can provide.
