PC upgrade

Go to solution Solved by XBL-Revolution,

it's got 4.5 stars so I can't see why not.

Great i shall try it! Thx for everyone's help :) i thought i was gonna get shunned for such the bottleneck my system would have but all turned out well :)

So i bought a GTX 980ti from amazon yesterday and i need to know if i can atleast be able to use it with my setup i know it will be bottlenecked but i am intending to upgrade my other stuff soon! So i need to know if I will be able to run the GTX 980ti and what will be a good upgrade path for my PC (CPU, RAM, Motherboard, etc) I do prefer AMD. 

 

Current PC Setup:

Mobo: Gigabyte 78LMT-USB3.0

Processor: AMD FX-6300

Ram: Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB Dual Channel DDR3

CPU Cooler: Hyper D92

It will get bottlenecked by the CPU. You can go intel or wait till zen or get a 8350

How bad will it get bottlenecked?

Quite bad using the FX 6300, I would say 20-30% less fps/performance

It all depends on the Usage Scenario

doesn't matter, any bottleneck is enough to render the extra cash you spend on the card useless

Why AMD? Intel's processors atm are much better.

Intel 6700k. If amd then FX 9590 (you never mentioned budget)

More affordable for me. Also keep in mind my current Mobo uses AM3+ so if i stick with FX Series i will also save money in the mobo. I do know i need to update my modo soon to but i would rather be latter.

Dont need a water cooler, an air cooler like hyper 212 evo is sufficient

It'll be fine with the 6300, at least for now. Sure there will be a bottleneck but only to a minimal amount (losing 5-10 fps compared to something like a 5960x), not the 20/30% less performance that I saw someone else saying. You're better off waiting until you can upgrade to Intel (getting a new mobo + cpu) as the 9590 is not a good CPU by any stretch of imagination.

Looked at the FX 9590 on Newegg it says liquid cooler is required

just to confirm for the 9000th time my current setup WILL be able to at least use the 980ti knowing my PSU is @600w the 980ti will still work with all my other parts?

Ohh I sort of glossed over the PSU part, you'd probably want 650+ watts for a 980ti.

That is one helluva bottleneck going on there... I mean at least you'll make full use of the processor right?
