Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

cpu: Amd Fx-8370
gpu: Msi r9 380 (current one) 

Ram: kingston 8gb 1333mhz ddr3
Motherboard: amd 970 gaming
psu: be quiet! Pure Power 11 600W

Planing to change old gpu r9 380 to used rx 580 8gb for 100€, is it worth it? Won't my cpu be bottle necking the gpu?

kinda, depending on the game. Although if you want a better GPU now and upgrade the CPU later, you won't have to worry.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.
