Solved Would a Phenom II X4 965 Black bottleneck a new Radeon R7 250? Tags: Phenom Bottleneck CPUs Radeon Last response: October 15, 2013 1:49 AM in CPUs Share Jubawub October 15, 2013 1:42:38 AM I'm on an ~$400 budget, and I know that the new R7 250's aren't super amazing, so please don't be telling me to upgrade parts. I can't. My Partlist I will be OC'ing the CPU too much, but later as I don't think I can afford a CPU cooler at this time, so any suggestions on how high I can OC the 965 on a stock cooler?

To start bottlenecking a stock 965 you would need a 7850.
