I'm about to get a new cpu and from reading this:
Will a FX 8350 bottleneck 2x gtx 970 in sli? - Graphics Cards - Linus Tech Tips
threads i think that 8350 should be fine for single and even dual 970s as i'm planning to get another gpu in the future.
As i'm practically days from getting the cpu i want just a final confirmation that i'm not wasting money.
Intel is not an option because i already had to buy a mobo since my old died and i had to get one that supports both old and new cpu.
I will overclock both cpu and gpu as soon as i upgrade psu and cpu cooler.
So i guess my question and tldr is:
Generally, what can i expect from it with 970 and 970 sli?
Will the 8350 get similar fps to 4690k-4790k? I mean 0-15 difference when 70+
How big performance improvement will i get over my email@example.com
btw. I'm not playing any rts or arma games, i like to mod my bethesda games tho but now with phenom i get 70+ fps in fnv with ~130 mods
games i will play:
witcher 2 and 3
saints row 3 and 4
