Wondering if my cpu is bottlenecking my graphic card?

So I have an amd phenom II x6 1090t 3.2ghz base OC'ed to 3.8ghz
and a r9 280x msi twin frozer

after OCing my cpu my load times and fps went almost double, but I'm still wondering if theres still any bottlenecking.Hint:-I usually play fps games like battlefield 4,cod ghost,ISS etc so I don't think they use much cpu but yeah, was wondering if anyone could tell me.

  1. I have a 1090t too.. but im @ 4ghz can go to 4.1 but I want better cooling than I have now. but I mean I can play on ultra setting @1080p with a 270x..
  2. You realize that means shit to me because right now I can play any game on max settings with a stable 50-60 fps,but my question was if there was any bottlenecking.because I want to record too and I need as much fps I can get.No offense but that answer didn't really help me out.
  3. look at it this way you can go out and spend 400 or so on a new mobo and processor or pick up a r9 280x which is what i wanted to do but refused to pay inflated prices. I honestly planned on getting a 290 but sense i just got the 270x I'm pretty happy with it .. I guess what it boils down to is money... you get the idea. you could always shell out more cash for the 290 from what i understand with other people who have the same processor its not bottle necked. by the 1090t but its not a 4770k so its your choice..
  4. I think you read it wrong,I already HAVE A r9 280x and that CPU.I was wondering if theres any bottlenecking due to the CPU.That was My QUESTION.Sorry for the caps but I caped the words that are important.
  5. I don't think there is much bottleneck because you've overclocked the processor.
  6. So you reckon there's still some bottleneck?Is there anyway I can figure out if theres any bottleneck.
  7. yea if your cpu usage is at 100 % and your gpu usage is less than 100% that would indicate a bottle neck but games like bf4 really benefit from ssd drives.
  8. Any way where I can find out my cpu usage,I can find out my gpu usage in my msi afterburner,but I do not know any program that shows cpu usage

    performance monitor .. or task manager just alt + tab in and to the desktop the last few minutes will show on the tracker.
  10. yea mine peaks out on all 6 cores at about 65 70 percent. with a 270x so I know my graphics card is not bottle necked by my 1090t.
