performance increase in upgrading

currently i haeve an fx-6300 and 650ti boost and i was definetly going to upgrade my gpu to an 760 and i was wondering if it will bottleneck and if i should upgrade to an is-4430. i am planning on playing star citizen and planetside 2 at max graphics and from what ive read the upgraded cpu will not increase my performance by much what do you think?

  1. the 6300 will bottleneck a 760 in cpu demanding games. it shouldn't be much to worry about for now. Get the cpu and then get a hardware monitor if you feel like you're not getting the best performance. if you see your cpu at or near 100% and your gpu is much much lower (say 70-80%) then you have a bottleneck. Depending on your motherboard you could upgrade to an 8320 or 8350 to get a boost in performance without having to change your motherboard (again only if you have a decent AM3+ mobo)
  2. You should be fine with FX6300 and GTX760, A little overclock on the CPU will help if any bottleneck.

    how difficult is it to overclock? i was going to get the hyper 212 evo if its good or should i go for a lower profile one? can you post a link to an overclocking guide please.
  4. The 212 Evo is a great budget cooler and really OC FX CPU is just go in BIOS and up the multiplier, higher overclocks will require voltage tweaks but mild none.

    so i should do like 10% up on the core multiplyer or just bump it up by 1% incriments until it doesnt work?
  6. Normally one step at a time monitoring temps and stability.
  7. what temp should i stay away from?
  8. What motherboard are you using? You could add a second GTX650ti Boost and run them in SLI.

    i did think about this expecially with the price of the 650s now but i fond out my aus m5a97 le r2.0 does not do nvidia sli which is a big bummer
  10. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww that sucks. Then yes I would probably get a GTX 760 in your case. I'm sure you could sell your 650ti Boost to get some of that money back.

    When it starts climbing to or past 65°C on the package (not core it is time to stop) max core temp is 62°C.
