I've read around a bit already and from what I've seen I'm pretty sure my CPU will bottleneck the card, but I just wanted to be sure if the CPU does bottleneck the card, I'll take any suggestions for another card that won't be bottlenecked. I'm looked to upgrade from my Gtx 560 to play max metro last light at 1080 p single monitor 1920 x 1080 with physx enabled, tesselation high , but no SSAO cuz it's too killer on fps

i got a 7870 with my 945 x4 and its fine. also this thread suggests that it can handle 690 GTX on 1090T. yes it has more core and IPC is better, but he is refering to a 2 threaded game.
FX 4300 has 2 FP units. I donot understand why ppl recommend this to a person who already has a true quad core. its 2013 and single thread is not as imp as it was before.
fx6300 has more integer unit and it is better, but i donot see the point of that upgrade. he can keep his x4 now and go for a steamroller should he need more firepower
