Building a new budget build. I just purchased a MSI 970A-G46 MB, 8gb hyperx ram and a FX-6350. I have a 679w PSU. Planning on buying next week a GTX 770 4gb. I want the R9 280x, but it's out of stock everywhere.
My question is if my fx-6350 Will bottleneck these cards on high/ultra settings for Battlefield 4? I installed the 6350 already into the board but think Amazon will allow me to return it if it's not going to work with my planed set up. I would like to avoid returning the cpu but if I'm not going to take advantage of card then I will return it. I have read many threads on matters close to this issue but no to the point answers. please help! and thank you. If I'm not going to gain 5-10 fps by switching to a amd 8350 then I'm not really worried about it. Any input helpful. Thanks.

By the way. The R9280x is all out of stock at a decent price is what I meant. Just to clear things up.

Look for a HD 7970 (same card as R9 280x) if that's in stock then I suggest you get it

Thank you. will look into it. Main question, will a fx-6350 bottleneck that card on high setting (Hd7970)? Main concern right now is if I need to return this 6350 or not. Its frustrating. Some forums say no the fx-6350 will not bottleneck a mid-range card and others say it will.

It won't bottleneck either the 7970/280x (same card) or the 770
