Hello! im sitting here with my trusty phennom ii x6 1090 Black Edition.
I ordered a AMD radeon R9 290 Gigabyte windforce to replace my old ATI Radeon 5970 XFX but im wondering if my phennom will bottleneck the R9 290 i have my Phennom oced at 4.0GHZ

CPU: phennom ii x6 OC to 4GHZ
PSU: Seasonic 750W silver certified.
8GB of Kingston 1866HZ Ram.

the 1090t will do a great job in 95% of games every bit the equivalent of the fx 8350 in most games. But will not do that great in poorly threaded games. Like ps2 or saints row 4.

I´ve read about AMD´s FX series and honestly it's nothing "new" so i hope my phennom will be enough for now, specially now that i Made a slight oc =)

Your Phenom will be able to cope, I'm running the Phenom X6 1100T @ 4.1Ghz with an R9 290X and 16gb of DDR3 @ 2133mhz and it hasnt had any bottleneck issues. I've played games such as Battlefield 4, Crysis 3 and Planetside with no issues regarding bottleneck.
