Worth Upgrading FX 6300 to 8350/70?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My current build:

 

FX 6300 at 3.8 GHZ light OC (I origanlly did 4.0 ghz with stock cooler but my shitty PSU died browsing the web so I got my old one much reliabru and got paranoid)

16 gb DDR3 HyperX Fury 1866 mhz

Shittabyte 970 DS3 sometin sometin

RX 480 8gb

512 gb offbrand SSD I forgot

 

So. I need help deciding if I should save up for a Ryzen 5 and Corsair Vengeance ramor just get a different AM3+ processor. I will be playing Total War games, Skyrim, etc. I don't make videos often, so that isn't an issue. I do have some problems running games like Skyrim SE and Attila in CPU heavy zones so I really need something more powerful.

 

Bottom line - Should I upgrade bois?

 

P.S. - cringy meme op

will there be that little of a performance boost? My shift key is sticking up rip.

Not little, but huge. While you are at it, might as well get a new PSU that's good.

R5 blows FX anything out of the water. 

Don't pump extra money into that old POS.

Ryzen, also sell the 480 for some nice profit.

Not that nice of a profit. Might be able to trade it for a used 1070 though.

Powercolor RX 480 8Gb Red Devil @1330Mhz

 

Bottom line:  Don't be a spaz or an 800lb gorilla when installing your expensive CPU, and you won't have any problems. --Phate.exe
