So i currently have a 5600g and was planning to upgrade to the upcoming 7700 xt... But i was concerned about how bad the cpu bottleneck would be. My mobo is a b550m pro vdh wifi and from what ive seen it only has cpu pcie 3.0 support, so would the bottleneck be a large issue for running something like 1080p 240hz at high-ultra settings for most games?
 
5600g is a recent processor and no slouch compared to the card. I don't think there will be any performance limitation. Should work fine together with that card. Also, PCIe 3.0 is a non factor. GPU speeds are still lightyears away from PCIe bandwidth saturation.
