  4. Nope, it'll be just fine. :)
    Only in very CPU intensive games like CS:GO or Crysis 3 will it make any difference to buy a better CPU.
  5. All recent games are using 4 cores so this chip would work fine paired with an R9 290x and at least 8gb of memory, no bottlenecks

    Crysis 3 and BF4 in 64 man campaign node would benefit from i7, but even then, I would buy a Xeon 1231v3 instead. :D
  7. if i dont want bottleneck what cpu should i upgrade
  8. It'll be just fine to be honest, but an overclocked i5 4690K will do even better. :)
  9. ok thank
  10. All good!
