FX-6300 & 7950 or 3570k and 7870 Tags: New Build Systems Last response: February 21, 2013 2:29 PM in Systems Share 9334joshua February 21, 2013 2:33:15 AM Which combination would be better? A FX-6300 & a AMD HD7950 or 3570k & AMD7870. I'm leaning towards the FX6300 because it's slightly cheaper but the only issue is that perhaps the cpu will bottleneck the gpu in the future? Any ideas?
