So I have AMD Phenom II x4 965be and I'm going to get sapphire radeon HD 7950 I think my cpu will bottleneck even after OC. So would it be better to get fx-6300 to go along with the 7950 is that a good pair or will it bottleneck as well? Planning on playing BF 3 BF 4 Watchdogs and also playing valve games civ 5 and so on. Oh and if you want to know I have 8GB of RAM and 620W PSU

A FX 6300 and a 7950 will be a great combo! Also later on if you want to upgrade to a graphics card that's even better than the 7950 you can always upgrade the FX 6300 to something like a FX 8350. In my opinion this would be a great upgrade for you.

I can answer this question with great confidence because I use to own an fx 6100 at 4.8ghz. I later upgraded to an i7 3820, I saw very little performance gain at all with my overclocked 7950. So the 6300 with the 7950 will work wonderfully. Especially if you run on a 1920x1080 resolution.

it is a good pair..but you will need to OC your 6300..just to make sure they dont bottleneck ...
or i would suggest you to get an FX 8350 and 7870XT..
7870xt is compared to 7900 chips as it has 1536 shaders, Tahiti based GPU

What about the 8320? Cause it would be cheaper and I hear it isn't that of a downgrade from 8350

yeahh..you can get FX 8320.. it is also a good choice over 6300..
you can OC it in future and it will easily pass more than 8350 @ stock..

One more question though. My mobo is asrock 970 pro 3 Will the 8320 work how well on it?

it will run well on it,,see it is supported by your mobo
http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/970%20Pro3/?cat=CPU..
but you might have to update your bios.. (not a big deal)


So it will run well although it is 970 chipset? I heard from a Review of this mobo that 8 cores will not perform that great on it... So i'm scared... :D
