so i am getting gtx 780 ti classified and i have a AMD fx 8320 at 4.0…. how bad do you think my bottlenecking will be? Everywhere i go i get people saying how bad my cpu is and stuff i just want a honest answer. I'm not looking for people saying that i need to get a i7 4770k. also is there any news of a new AMD cpu coming to the market.

I have historically used AMD CPUs only in system builds with budgets < $850 .... The Classified puts you well out of that category so I can offer you little help there as have no direct experience matching those two.

You will need a 650 watter PSU if you are going to start playing with the Classy's voltage mod stuff..... and it's about the only card (well that and the Lightning) that Id recommend more than 1000 in SLI.

Fx 8320 and bottleneck? No sir there won't be a bottleneck with this CPU.

Depends on the games he's playing. Anything using 3 cores or less will bottleneck hard. Games using 4 cores have a noticeable bottleneck typically, especially if made by Ubisoft, as they optimize aggressively for Nvidia+Intel. I've been posting links proving this all morning though, so forgive me for not going through the tedium a fifteenth time.

You should still get 45+ fps at the lowest on that CPU, so yes, still good framerates by my standards.
Most are still capable of hitting 60+ fps on an overclocked FX-8320, it's just that there are better options for the price.

None can give you a minimum frame rate to expect as every game/system is different. All in all you should have minimal bottlnecks with single 780ti. The FX is a quite capable CPU and pretty much every game thats GPU bound will produce awesome results @ 1080p/60.

Now with that said you will run into bottlenecks with RTS games or pretty much any game that relies on 1 or 2 strong threads to push it forward. A high OC will alleviate most of that but some games are terribly optimized and it will show. Especially if your aiming for the 120 fps mark.

ty for the answer, as long as i can push 60 fps in most games i will be fine. worst case ill just put the old gtx 670 in and get a better cpu later.

Little to no bottleneck with this combination sir.
