[SOLVED] what happens when you processor is better then your cpu?

Well it depends on the application.

If for example in GPU intensive applications - like higher end games, then your GPU works hard whilst your CPU takes it easy.
But then equally in CPU intensive applications, like editing, your CPU will work really well.
So basically, when you need more graphics, your CPU is more than enough, but your GPU is put under higher loads.

Nothing harmful comes from it, just means you can't play at top settings until you upgrade your GPU.
Or you can continue being very effective with CPU intensive applications.

That's just a general summary though.

Is there anything in particular you're worried about?

What CPU do you currently have? If it's something like an i5, then you probably won't see that much benefit to performance in most games, as your existing processor will in most cases be fast enough to keep up with a GTX 1050 as it is. What are your complete system specs, along with the resolution you are gaming at (if improving gaming performance is your goal)?
