AMD Processor That Won't Bottleneck W/ GTX 780 TI

Recently I got a 780 ti graphics card and its been serving me pretty good but I know it is being bottle-necked by my FX 4000 series cpu and I have been looking to upgrade to  a CPU where I will not have bottle-necking issues, I would get an Intel but obviously I have an AMD motherboard and I don't want to but a new  motherboard and swap the whole thing out as well.

Just buy the most expensive AMD FX CPU available, problem solved.

Windows 10 Pro x64 with Open Shell

Vivaldi x64, HWInfo64, Macrium Reflect Free, SoftMaker Office, XYplorer pro

Get a FX 8320 and OC it if your motherboard can stand it :)

If you have a crappy mobo check the FX 8 core refresh, it has the same FX 8320 and FX 8350 but with different names (can't remember them now) a much lower TDP.

That's not how it works, he can get a FX 9590, which is a factory OC'd FX 8350 but with a massive TDP, enough to melt a low end board.

Dammit, I keep forgetting that AMD builds nuclear power plants instead of CPU's.

Epic fail for me. Oh wait, that's right I'm with Intel.

One that won't bottleneck a 780 Ti at all? There isn't one.

 

The 4xxx,6xxx,8xxx, and 9xxx chips all use the same core modules just with varying clocks. A 4300/6300/8320 @ 5Ghz in a game that uses two cores won't be any faster than a 9590 @ 5Ghz in a game that uses two cores. The problem is the poor performance of the cores themselves. You don't want a bottleneck? get a i5 and pretty much any board that will support it. Want something a bit better? get a k chip and a Z97 board and overclock it. You don't need some crazy high end board to overclock an i5 and you can get 4.5Ghz+ on pretty much any Z97 board unless you get shit on in the lottery.  Go intel, you will get far more for your money.

FX-8320E and overclock it to 5 GHz.

There are no 8xxx chips capable of 5Ghz at a reasonable voltage anymore because AMD holds them all back to become 9590's.
