Even the 2500K is still decent.

lowest I'd go with 1080 is a 4.5GHz 3570K with 2133 memory. It'd bottleneck but not nearly bad enough for me not to buy the card if I had the money

I kind of perplexed that this was even asked.

I'd imagine with a 4690K @ 4.4 GHZ, MSI Afterburner would report near constant 99% GPU usage with a 1080.

You're fine.

Oh. I think this might be what prompted the question: http://www.overclock.net/t/1607118/bottleneck-or-what-i7-4790k-4-5ghz-and-gtx-1080-fe

Rumor that I needed to question If im investing £650 I want to do it in the most effective way for my needs, no point having all that power if I could not utilize it fully.

So far the 1080 is my top option then in the future upgrade my monitor when the wife allows it thumb.gif
post #16 of 19
you willl not utilize the power of that 1080 only in cpu bound scenes, and that like I said is not gonna get bottleneck that much since 4690K 4.6Ghz is pretty fast

while picking the card be aware of:

-DPC latency on Pascal cards

-900 series being moved to legacy support

well, on the bright side you can get a killer deal on Fury and be sure they're gonna get good support in dx12

4GB only tho
post #19 of 19
Yeah. I just watched a video of a guy with the 4690K @ 4.4GHZ commentating on DX12 an what not. His core were lit up to 100%.

Very weird.

I watched a benchmark of GTA V and the same thing happened.

Couldn't believe my eyes.
