Would a 780ti work well with my X4 860K?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Current build:
AMD Athlon X4 860k CPU
Gigabyte GA-F2A88XM-D3H Motherboard
8gb DDR3 RAM
GTX 770 SC 2gb GPU
600 watt Corsair PSU
I have a Sentey case

My question: I would like to upgrade my GPU and RAM in the next couple months. I am thinking of getting a 780ti and getting another stick of 8gb RAM.
Will the 780ti run well with my 860k? Any bottlenecks?
If I need to upgrade my CPU to avoid bottlenecks I will, but I'll have to get a new motherboard (my motherboard currently doesn't support anything higher-end than an 860k). If I have to upgrade I am looking at an AMD FX 8300.


Thoughts?

There will be a slight bottleneck, depending on how far that 860 is OCed, but the bottleneck won't be big enough to justify spending so much money on changing mobo and CPU.
You can try and buy mostly CPU optimized games in order to avoid the bottleneck smile.gif

It's not that the CPU is slow, it's actually crazy fast.

Just the game devs don't care about optimizing their code. As a programmer myself, I am disgusted with modern games smile.gif

Will the 780 Ti run well with the 860K? In gpu intensive games yes. It will run well and you will be able to max out or near max out most gpu intensive games at 1080p considering those games are light and don't punish the CPU hard enough.
Will the 860K bottleneck the 780 Ti? Yes. It will bottleneck in cpu intensive apps, and the increase in performance will be noticeable in those scenarios if you moved to an i5 CPU or FX 8xxx.

Thanks! I might just end up waiting a little while and doing a massive upgrade to my PC, adding a 980 or 980ti and different mobo/processor

with a 780ti it would be around 40% faster than a 770, it will be a bottleneck, unless the game is really GPU limited given a high res or just the games needs more GPU than CPU

but getting a 980 isnt a good idea if you buy it on 2016.new card on AMD/nvidia will have 16nm finfet and HBM 2nd gen
