Gtx 1060 with amd

by Mikefeechuk / March 9, 2017 3:33 PM PST

Hello thank you for taking the time to read this my current setup right now is a GIGABYTE GTX 1060 G1 GAMING a AMD fx-8320 overclocked to 4 Ghz, 8GB of ddr3 ram so when im playing grand theft auto 5 with all high-ish setting my frames top out at 62 and they constantly drop down to 45 even down to 28Fps a lot of the time and its really annoying because i put $700 into this thing and its kinda disappointing i can barely run gta v so my question is, is my GTX1060 bottlenecking from my cpu and if so would i see a huge difference if i upgraded to a amd fx-9590 4.7 Ghz 8 core cpu(id overclock to 5Ghz) or would i be better off selling my amd **** and going intel

Sounds spot on.

Why? Because scenes can get complicated, frame rates do drop. The bottleneck answer is no. Even the old i5-2500 could drive a trio of GPUs so there is no CPU to GPU bottleneck.

You either curb the settings or move up to more powerful GPUs.
