Well this is odd, i overclocked my FX-8300 to 4Ghz and it's suddenly 5% better than this one… i don't think that's how performance works GD

I think it is rated higher for overall performance, and not only in games. Yes, that link shows the g4560 performs a bit better than the fx8350, but only dx11 games were shown which has problems utilising the eight cores in the fx. Perhaps 3dmark and dx12 may show a different result.

Any gpu faster than gtx 960 and FX 8350 will bottleneck it .. even more in cpu intensive games .. but i guess you can OC it to 4.6-4.7GHz and buy RX 470 and you'll be fine ..

No you are fine with a RX 480. This CPU starts bottlenecking the 1070, but up to 480/1060 you will be good, no OC needed. Source : I own this

Hey guys, will this CPU be a bottleneck if I buy a GTX 1060 or an RX 480? If so, is there a better AMD CPU in the same price range?

No, there will be no bottleneck for GTX 1060 or RX 480. And currently, there is no better AMD CPU silicon than the 8350. 9370 and 9590 are just overclocked 8350s. However, in a few months there will be (ryzen).

I recommend Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3. This generally the cheapest "990FX" chipset motherboard, so it is very good for overclocking and can supply enough power to the CPU when doing it


You will have an excellent, even VR-capable PC, so enjoy.

If you cannot afford it, the cheapest "safe" motherboards I recommend are ASUS M5A97 R.20 and MSI 970 Gaming. Both have 8 pin CPU power connectors and good heatsinks, so they can handle the delivery of power to the very power hungry FX 8350

i5 6500 if you cannot find 8350 for below -67% of the i5 price. Find one bundled with the wraith cooler, too. Also, in the states microcenter has great deals on cheap i5s (got my i5 4590 for $160 and CPU+mobo combo savings.)

https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/970A-SLI-Krait-Edition.html#hero-overview this one is pretty decent. I had one and it was pretty good. Everything was relatively good quality. if you plan to NOT overclock your cpu you are golden with it. Here in Croatia it is 100€. But if you would like to oc cpu a little bit i would suggest https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/970-PRO-GAMING-AURA/ because it is very good quality and its only 120€.This one also get you more features like m

on asus 970 pro gaming aura I can get stable 4.6GHz on air at 63c max temp at stress testing. if i can get water i could get easily to 5GHz. But on msi 970a sli krait edition i couldnt get over 4.4GHz.

The ASUS 970 PRO GAMING AURA has 4+2 VRMS and the A970 MSI KRAIT EDITION HAS 4+1VRMS.they both aren't great for high overclock,and if you want to push the cpu above 4.4ghz you need a 990FX Chipset instead,overall both of these motherboards are good enough for Stock FX CPU And or slight overclock :D

You are welcome.but as i said if you want to run at stock speeds or a little OC,then you can get one of these two boards,they are around 80-100€,The 990FX boars will cost above 130€ depends of the model,and also if you plan to overclock a lot,you need WATER COOLING.,Slight overclock and or running at stock i consider a good air cooler like a CM hyper 212 evo to keep the temps under 50C.

The 970 chipsets and hyper 212 evo is able to do 4.5ghz as an maximum on that,i wouldn't go any higher,and a good 970 board is also just fine if you aren't an heavy overclocked,i run my cpu at 4.4ghz on a A970 krait msi board,it runs fine but i just need to maintain to lower the temps inside the case :D

That suggestion would help me a lot, thanks for the info, well for me, the performance of the fx 8350 for 8core/4.0ghz is enough for my low end games, unless if i download something like requires a higher than 4ghz 8cores, well i guess,

For the future, maybe i will. But for now, i will check for the msi 970A thanks dude. It helped a lot dude. What about the good performance but low on price GPU? Something like rx 470 4gb. Is that a good gpu for fx 8350?

that is pretty good gpu for this cpu. i think rx 480 would be a limit for this cpu but rx 470 is pretty good.

You might want to check out the Gigabyte 970A-DS3P. I picked one up for $60. Haven't overclocked on it just yet, so I'm not sure of its capabilities in that area. It's been a great MOBO for me so far, especially for the price

I love my 8350 but honestly, the 1070 would probably be bottle necked by the 8350. Intel's Core i7-6700K would probably perform much better. As for the the PSU, as long as it is a good 500w PSU you should be okay.
