To start off I'm an amateur ?

My brother built me a gaming pc sometime in 2012. I sold it to a friend in uni a few years ago and he offered it back for free. 

It was on an am3+ board and i was wondering would something like a fx 9590 at 4.7ghz keep up with a gtx 1060 6gb?

it would more or less work just fine, but damn would that be a power hungry CPU, is that what it currently has or was this a proposed upgrade?

 

Also used and new favor the RX 580 over the GTX 1060, same performance for less cost.


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

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

that fx9590 cpu was meant to be used by overclocking enthusiasts, to see how far they could overclock it but is far from ideal for daily use or for a gaming pc

 

at this point in time, put such power hungry cpu on a old motherboard is beg to all go to the dumpster

 

if the machine has already a fx8300 or something like that, leave it like that, don't change the cpu

 

a 1060 will work fine on most games, others will be abit limited limited by the lack of power on each of the cores in that cpu, is doable, but don't update the cpu if it has more than 6 cores

 

remember that a 8 cores fx is basically less powerful than any r3 1200, so keep that in mind, is a better experience when playing games on he r3, that might push better the 1060

 

those old fx pcs are nice, specially for free, but not ideal these days for gaming purposes

I have a 5GHz 8320E system in my closet,should perform slightly better than the 9590 (same silicon higher clock speed)

It bottlenecked my old R9 380 4GB in a lot of games,which is weaker than the 1060.

Major bottleneck in every Assassin's Creed game that was released in the past 5 years,and in Watch Dogs too,

Moderate bottleneck in GTA V and FFXV.

I don't remember in what other games it bottlenecked,but most games FX CPUs don't bottleneck.

It should be okay for modern games, some would play better than others, of course. Just be aware than, for certain games that love more core counts, the FX9590 would struggle, but as I've said, it should be okay for most games as of now.
