How bad will this bottleneck be?

An AMD A4-4000 Richland 3.2GHz paired with a Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 1GB? I know, I know...'why are you getting such a crappy processor?'...because I need a computer right now, and I don't have enough money for a good processor. I will eventually get a better processor, and probably later on get another 7850 for crossfire. And also, is there any place where i can sell factory sealed PC games? Because the 7850 comes with 3 free games. And, as much as I'd like to play Bioshock Infinite, this'll bring me closer to getting a better cpu. And, please don't go into more detail on why I should get a better cpu right now. Unless you know of one for like 100 or less that will not bottleneck at all, please don't bother. Thanks in advance.

More about bad bottleneck
  1. for 100$ you could get an phenom 4x II 965 BE
  2. yea that or the FX-6300. you would need a new motherboard though

    the bottleneck will be noticeable but not terrible in most games. In cpu intensive games, it will be pretty bad.

    The bottleneck for the A4-4000 or the FX-6300?
  4. The a8-5600k is currently $90.

    It won't be too bad as long as it's not a cpu heavy game. The game bundles are just the keys and you download them, you don't get discs.

    But can I sell them?

    Well with an a4-4000 cpu with a 7850 the 7850 will perform at like 30% of its capabilities as the a4 is more a web browsing entry level cpu with good integrated graphics designed for playing games on low settings. I think you should choose a faster cpu even an a10 will be a massive improvement and thats like an entry level cpu.


    So what could I get at around $100? It doesn't have to be AMD, I just have to choose a different mobo. Maybe an i3?
