hey guys, i have recently upgraded from a gtx 560 to a gtx 760, it cost me all my money and after installing it, i realised that there was barely ANY performance difference between the gtx 560 and the gtx 760? is this because my AMD A-10 6800k is bottlenecking? if so, what would be the ideal cpu for my setup? THANKYOU!!

specs:
Gigabyte windforce gtx 760 OC edition 2GB
AMD A-10 6800k
8GB kingston RAm
1TB SSD

Assuming both GPUs work perfectly then yes the A10 would be a bottleneck. However, I need to know..what resolution are you gaming on? Are you using FRAPS to record fps?

thanks for your quick reply, and i run at 1080x1920 and yes i use fraps to see my fps ( i dont record with it though) and FYI, im on 750 w

I believe there is a bottleneck but I'm not sure it could be that significant to cause no performance increases. This graph you should compares processors with a 580 (gpu) at diff resolutions. Look at 1900x1200 : i5-3570k to A10-6800k. It is 129fps vs 92fps. A i5 gives 40% more fps.

I know you spend a lot of money on the GPU, it's excellent. But you might want to upgrade from FM2 to a i5 + mobo. The A10 is best used for gaming at 720p cuz you don't need a discrete GPU to get great fps. Also, A10 likes faster RAM..2133 which again improves fps.

Here is another example where you can see how at 1080p gaming the A10 is limiting. In this example the cpus are paired with a 670.

i see what you are saying, and i probably will end up getting a i5 or fx 6300 or something like that, but i still dont understand the weird pattern of performance boosts? i get like a 20fps boost on skyrim but on ALL other games its 7 fps and the most? and thanks again for the reply, it helped me decide on a solution :)

I wouldnt say so that badly. a 4350 ( OCed 4300) at 4.2ghz is rougly 5% better than a 750k @ 4.3 whcih is an older architecture than your 6800k. Do people say a 4300 bottlenecks a 760? no.

Going from a 560 to 760 should be a massive difference. It's like getting 60fps on medium but now get the same on Ultra...or at least it should be. The 760 is excellent.
