FX8350 &GTX780 (SLi)

Hi!

I've been asking around the tech forums in my country and they said that my FX8350 CPU can't max out a single GTX780 not to mention the SLi.

Is it true or I've found all intel fans in my region?

Many thanks.

Technically not even a i7 4770 can do that, but that SLI will help for 2.5k - 4k gaming, at 1080p 780 SLI is overkill no matter the CPU, that unless you want crysis 3 like games maxed out and above 60 fps.

Take a look at BF4 bechmarks, Core i3 can in some situation be as equal as FX8350 and i7 4770k.

It all depends on game and settings. A game like Minecraft requires a lot from the CPU and barely anything from the GPU.
For most modern games in 1440p, an FX8350 will be a pretty sweet match with two GTX780s.

Well I'm playing on a single 1920*1080 screen 1080p. Not planning bigger. Avg. 60 fps would be nice in any game.

Well it can keep up but not max out. In any case if building on and using $1000+ GPU solution then why not go with a stronger CPU, nobody is going to argue against that the top Intel's are better.

Well, at 1080p, a single GTX780 will do fairly steady 60 FPS or above in most games at highest graphical quality. Getting another one in SLI will only help in the most demanding games.

Remember, a 8350 is a overclocking master.
It won't bottleneck, i can assure you that, MAYBE on stock it will slightly bottleneck, but i would overclock it, then it wont be a problem. But i'd recommend a single 780, there's no need for two of those! Or you could get the 780 TI.

Indeed, nobody will argue with that, but at a certain point you`ll be just paying a lot of money for almost too little performance gain. And i don`t think he will do a lot of Starcraft 2 / WOW/ Minecraft where a strong CPU will really show.

And some people spend $400-500+ on adding another card to go from 60fps to 100fps because they can but will never see the difference only a number changing.

That also, personally if i had a 780 i wouldn`t go as far as getting a second one, just yet, but on the other hand 2 of those will have a better impact than a better cpu, at least for future games when the graphics will go even better.

Let me put it straight. an FX8350 and a single GTX780 will be great for 1080p. No need for a stronger CPU, nor another GPU in SLI. If you TRULY want top notch performance despite unreasonable price, you are obviously an enthusiast, and there is nothing we can do to stop you.

My mind is boggled when people purchase such expensive hardware to game at 1080p. Feel free to get a GTX 780, I won't stop you. Just know that my super cheap, overclocked HD7870 + my old 955 BE will deliver the same experience in 98% of games.

At most, I would get a GTX 770 or an R9 280 for 1080p at this very moment and even that is pushing it.

I won't sli them now. MAYBE later thats why I wrote (Sli).
But I think at the time when a second 780 will be needed there will be more efficent single GPUs.

Summ: My FX8350 won't bottleneck a single 780 or Sli if OC-ed.

So thanks for the heads up guys, shame that I can pick only one soulution. All the answers were very helpful.

Thank you!

I am a proud owner of an AMD FX 8350 OC'd 4.5ghz and SLI GTX 770. No bottleneck. runs buttery smooth. I know Intel is EVERYTHING BETTER! but! I like the extra money I saved by choosing AMD. there is a reason Sony and Microsoft chose AMD to power their devices... But I still crush any console ever made!

Good to hear! 8350 is a great CPU, and yes intels are better, but if you compare the price between intel and 8350, the 8350 is the best thing to get! It runs great and will do so for some years ahead.
Good gaming :)
