AMD FX 8350 with GTX 760 (bottleneck???)

0
June 28, 2016

Ok so I am getting a AMD FX 8350 along with a gtx 760. Today somebody told me my 8350 will severely bottleneck my gtx 760. This person is a die hard Intel fanboy and they recommended I go with an I5 instead. So I don't know whether to trust him or not. I know that the 8350 is comparable to the I7 so I really don't think it would impair my Gtx 760. So basically my question is will an AMD FX 8350 really bottleneck my gtx 760?

Definitely not a bottleneck and a capable CPU but I too would prefer an i5, depending on your budget

An i5 would be better and the 8350 can be a bottleneck, especially for high end GPU's in SLI. But with a single 760, you'll be fine.

Hard to call people fanboys anymore. AMD has pretty much abandoned the enthusiast, your friend is just being honest. It's hard to recommend a 2 year old CPU that was weak at launch, on a socket(AM3) that is likely dead.

I agree with everything the two people above me have said. The i5 would have been much better but the FX8350 is plenty good enough for a single GTX760.

The 8350 will not bottleneck, bottlenecking is a term used to describe when you haven't spent enough money on a product.

So these stupid fanboys believe that if you spend over 9,000 dollars on a CPU that you won't "Bottleneck" when in fact in every unbiased test they're wrong.

The GPU is more important.
