Will my CPU bottleneck my GPU ? Can my rig play all the latest games on ultra or high ?

Hey guys . I'm planning to buy a mid end gaming rig. And as do most I have a budget . In my country (New Zealand ) parts are a little for expensive . I was thinking of going with the fx 6300 for my CPU . It's amd I know but I can't afford a intel (the intels I can afford are i3s so please don't recommend them ) is this CPU enough for intense gaming on ultra settings ? Like battlefield 4 skyrim , planet side 2 all those CPU intensive games ? It's paired with the gtx 660 oc version (non ti ) . Will they bottleneck ? I m red your thoughts and please . No trolling and don't make this a. Amd vs intel battle .

No It will not Bottleneck your GPU in anyway until you have a Full Compatible MoBo for FX6300 .

No bottleneck since that's a very mid-range GPU. Would definitely put a CPU cooler on and overclock tho if you move up to a higher end GPU or you notice your CPU cores are running at or near 100% the majority of the time.

No It does not but if you want a Future Proof then Get a FX8350 or a Core i5 . Your Processor is Good .

Paired with the 660 OC, on some of the more cpu intensive games his i5 rig will outperform yours. Your fx6300 will be your bottleneck on games. You might not bottleneck on some games, but others you might.

If I were you, I would just save an extra $60 and get this: http://www.amazon.com/AMD-FD8350FRHKBOX-FX-8350-8-Core-...

Then you will not have to upgrade your CPU for a long time.

What are you talking about? Sounds like you have issues with your pc if you have an 8350 and a 780ti and are not happy.

I play everything on ultra with a smooth framerate and I have an i5 3570k and a GTX660. I am wonderfully happy with my PC. You sir have issues with your PC.

Bottom line, an FX8350 will be a great CPU for him if he does not want to spend the extra $50 for an i5 4670. He will be happy with either of those.
