Could someone tell me the REAL requirements? As I think the GD benchmark here is way too high. There's no way a 100 dollar CPU could perform better than an i5.

I know a 3770k is faster than 12% on most games even at 4k it's still mostly faster than a 8350.

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
