looking to upgrade with r9 280x gpu

Hi guys I m looking to upgrade my pc ..Though I have already bought fx 4300 and mobo is ga-78lmt-usb3.now I m looking to upgrade the GPU with r9 280 x Asus edition with corsair vs 650 PSU.I have heard that fx 4300 sometimes bottleneck with this card in ultra gaming.but I want to play high end games with no issues like throttle or lag.so my questain is I have 20inch lg led 1600×900 resolution so I am going to play with this monitor.so is there still chance to bottleneck 4300 with this card?because 1600×900 is really decent.so do I need to change this or fx 4300 is good enough with this..pls help me guys.I can't decide.Also i forgot to told that i have no desire to overclock the processor or gpu.because i think r9 280 x is easily capable to maxed out any game without any hitch..i have also 12 gb of corsair ram.thanx in advance.:)

  1. The 4300 isn't bad. There are some games out there that will cause to perform poorly. But the only fix for that is to get a better CPU. Overall you'd be ok, though I think the 6300 or an Intel CPU would be better.

  3. Thnx..but i have an amd board so i will not be able to plug a intel cpu.so if i overclocked 4300 to some extent then it will be ok or not??and also what do u think about 1600*900 resolution..because its very decent..so will u think that 4300 wont perform like battlefeild 4,gta 5,watchdogs or witcher 3 on ultra?and what do u think about r9 280x?thanx in advance.

    280X is a good card. I don't like sub 900 resolutions. 4300 isn't that bad, but it will have problems compared to the 6300/8320. OC as needed.
