Well, my build (pretty much the same as you just mentioned) is not bad at all, as long as you can get the parts at a good price, since aditrex is right, zen is coming soon, i would get the fx4300, then the rx460 and then a hyper t4 for cpu cooling, and leave the ram last, you got enough for now

another option the cpu would be looking in the used market for a Athlon II x2 220 or similar, an old dual core from the same family of your sempron with a decent performance, if you can find it for the right price go for it

but, what kind or tear of games do you intend to play? if you are looking to play AAA titles, this cpu will keep you back a lot, if you're into retro games or at least games less demanding then you should be fine with this upgrade and a 750ti or RX460, if you intend to play newer titles then look for al least the fx4300 or save for zen

if very cheap then go for it but phenom x945 is around fx 4300 performance but fx overclocks better then phenom and its more power efficient keep that in mind

Do exactly as Aditrex says, only get it if it has a decent price tag, this along with atleast a RX460 will do (solid 60 FPS in 1080p, as far as i remember)Sims 4 in ultra, GTA V in Low-Med, Witcher 3 Low-Med, take it down to 900p or 720p and most games will get to high easily

Internet and CES 2017 is awesome. I got to know about liquid sky a cloud gaming app which allows you to play games at 1080p on ultra and its free. And there is another option for monthly fee of 9.99$.its amazing i am just going to sub this.

I recently found out that GTX 1060 3GB will not perform well so suggest me something ? Or if i buy 1060 will it be ok,?

GTX 1060 3GB is not a bad video card for your resolution and budget. It should handle most games very well.

RX 470 power consumption is higher then gtx1060 and i have Coolermaster 450w power supply.and why RX 470 is future proof ? both cards have direct x 12 support then why everone is claiming that 470 is future?

The 1060 will absolutely be bottlenecked. I can't help you any further with choosing but consider pairing this processor with a marginally weaker graphics card than the 1060.

As per my knowledge , It will bottleneck only in CPU-demanding games.

Since I don't have access to my 6300 at the moment, I can't do benchmarks pairing it with the 970 and seeing how worse it does than on my i5. Here's somebody who has done something similar (1060 is slightly better than the RX480 which essentially equals the 970), take a look and decide if it's worth spending the money https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B58ciXUTlA8

You don't necessarily have to upgrade your CPU, the FX 6300 is a beast OCer, get a good cooler and have a shot at it. I'd probably go for a RX 460, maybe 470. But perhaps you would also want to save up, wait for the new Zen AMD CPUs and upgrade your entire rig, mobo, RAM, CPU, GPU, everything. It's entirely up to you, we can only give you all the possibilities.

A simple test that I've heard some people mention to see how many FPS your CPU can give you in a game is lower the resolution way down (until you gain no more FPS). Upgrading your GPU will be able to give you that performance at higher resolutions.

Dude, The video is with RX480, that will obviously bottleneck, don't compare RX480 with GTX 1060 3gb,Compare it with GTX1080. i dont want zen as then i will need to change everything.. GTX1060 3gb version is equivalent to RX470.

The RX 480, 1060 3GB and 970 all perform very similarly. AMD currently has no GTX 1080 equivalent.

it can keep up in some games where focus is on gpu but tensive games it can bottleneck yea even oced.. i would consider in rx 470 instead or gtx 1060 3gb or gtx 1050 4gb…

this processor have 3 physical cores and each cores have 2 threads, as it saying six core,, please game-debate make it right the: It offers 6 Physical Cores (6 Logical), initially clocked at 3.5GHz, which may go up to 4.1GHz and 8MB of L3 Cache.


there is no 6 physical core,,, but 6 logical threads

No it doesn't have only 3 cores. It's a true hexacore processor (has 6 PHYSICAL cores), at the moment only intel processors have the hyperthreading technology.

I'm sorry to say that Iamshagu is right. If you have the CPU check your task manager. Here's a breakdown of what's happening (I don't actually understand it but I'm assuming it's correct :P) https://www.reddit.com/r/explainlikeimfive/comments/2u0unk/eli5_why_does_task_manager_say_my_amd_fx6300_has/

Got this CPU for free and it handles both new and old games very well. I've been hitting max settings with 60fps on 1080p most of the time.

Locking the fps makes the game runs more stable, that's why it probably makes the cpu heat less. I don't really know, but I suppose that's the reason.

its becouse vsync cap fps to 60fps so you saving the gpu and cpu energy if those parts are able to push 100fps or 200fps so you basicly saving power to not push system to its limit…

I had this CPU with a 970 before and it could NOT keep up with the card. After I got an i5 6500 I got a considerable FPS bump, something around 10-12fps depending on the game. I also purchased an AMD CPU for affordable gaming, not to fry my eggs with in the morning. :P (what I'm trying to say with a joke here is that the processor get very hot even with an aftermarket cooler)

So you paid double for 10-12 fps more…good for you.
