Some people say that AMD CPU's are known to bottle neck higher end video cards. So im just wondering if I will get what I pay for with the Asus 680. Thanks for the time and help!
-Overclock your CPU to atleast 4GHz and you are fine.
-It's not AMD cpu's, it's just Bulldozer cpu's (Yours is a bulldozer)
-The 680 is overpriced as hell. If you want the strongest GPU out there, get a 7970 GHz. Otherwise get a $340 670 or a $295 7950...
The AMD 8150 won't bottleneck a gtx 680, so don't worry =)
I know that two or more gtx 680's (I can't remember if its 2,3, or 4) still won't bottleneck a core i5-3570k, and the 8150 isn't that far behind its intel counterpart.
EDIT: Oh wow, I saw the price on that card. I agree you should look for a gtx 680 that is in stock and much cheaper. A better option would be to either go for the AMD Radeon HD 7970 or the GeForce GTX 670. If you're not sure about a good brand, just read up on reviews on newegg.com or ask us again here.
What resolution are you going to be playing at? If you are going to be playing at 1440p or lower I would get the 670/680 (the 680 is normally around 15-20% more expensive but only gives 5-10% more performance) anything higher than that such as 1600p or multi monitor setup get the 7950/7970.
My current resolution is 1680x1050, going to upgrade monitor soon to 1900x1080. Hmmm so now the question is 7970 ghz or the asus. Thanks for answering this trea though! I will start a new one on asus 680 vs 7970 ghz. Good to know my CPU wont bottle neck though!!!
