Step 3: Select GPU

You're almost there! Having selected your purpose or game, and now your processor, you're just two step away from completing your bottleneck analysis. The next and equally crucial component to consider is your Graphics Card.

Why the GPU is Important

Your chosen GPU will significantly influence the visual experience and performance of your gaming or computing tasks. It needs to be compatible with your CPU and optimized for your chosen resolution to prevent any potential bottlenecks.

How to Choose

To simplify this decision-making process, we've put together a list of the most popular graphics cards. Here are some key points to consider while choosing your GPU:

  1. Compatibility: Ensure the graphics card you're considering is compatible with your motherboard and power supply.
  2. Resolution Performance: Your GPU should be capable of handling the resolution you selected earlier in the calculator. A mismatch can lead to poor performance or visual quality.
  3. Balancing with CPU: Remember the processor you picked? Make sure your GPU is a good match for it to avoid bottlenecks.
  4. Budget: As with any hardware, prices for GPUs can vary widely. Opt for the best graphics card within your budget to maximize performance.

Select purpose bottleneck calculator

Before selecting a bottleneck calculator, consider your primary computing tasks. For general activities like web browsing and office work, the calculator evaluates the balance between your CPU and GPU. If you focus on CPU-intensive tasks like video editing or 3D rendering, the tool will highlight processor performance. For GPU-centric tasks such as gaming or graphical rendering, it will assess the efficiency of your graphics card. Choose the appropriate calculator to accurately identify potential system bottlenecks for your specific use-case.
