    Hi,
    I have an old system and i want to upgrade my GPU to a GTX 1080 G1.
    I just want to know, can my CPU (it's not overclocked) bottleneck a GTX 1080 G1 on 1080p? (i dont dare to ask for a higher resolution).
    THX!

    Higher resolution less cpu bottleneck. U should be fine with everything cranked at 1080p. I would go for higher resolution monitor as that card would be over kill for 1080p.

    GTX1080 is not overkill for 1080p, max settings 120+Hz, for which the card is intended. 3570k will bottleneck it.

    Upgrade to a 100hz 1440p screen and you are absolutely fine.

    It depends on the game, CPU intensive ones like Assassins Creed Origins, Monster Hunter World, RTS games, Witcher 3 (for novigrad at least), Watchdogs 2, Battlefield series (or similar multiplayer that has tons of players), Crysis 3, GTA5 etc. will hold back the GTX 1080.
    My overclocked 3570K held back my 1070 on these games, was able to pick up a cheap 90usd 3770K and most of not all games had increased framerate, latest one being monster hunter world which demands many threads (it eliminated huge stuttering during combat, smoother exploration, and that 1fps during game boot) though a mod was made to seem to have fixed the threading issues.
