I will buy a gtx 1070 next week and my concern is about if my FX8350 is gonna bottleneck or hold the performance on the gtx1070. I dont wanna spend more money if i dont need to, but neither wanna see my $400+ getting stucked because of my cpu. So do i need to change to intel or my cpu will just go fine with it?? thanks to all.
i will be playing mostly BF1, witcher 3 or any kind of rpg.

You will be fine.

Go for the 1070 with your current set up. If necessary you could o/c the 8350 but its a good solid chip as it is

No need,the Pci 2.0 vs 3.0 is little,get the GTX 1070 and then OC the cpu :)

Later on u can swap to AM4/Zen or z170/Skylake

Im on a 8350 with a 290, stick with it. Bottlenecks are hogwash.

$400 for a 1070... your FX 8350 will do fine, wait for Zen and next gen Intel, net spend = $400 or.....
$400 for 1070 & $400 for Intel i5 and mobo = $800 net spend, next gen Intel and Zen will be out by then and you may kick yourself, your 8350 can game just fine do you need an extra 10fps for $40 per FPS cost?

Upgrade your GPU that's a good choice, don't splurge $400-$600 on intel at this moment, it will yield little improvements for the cash outlay whilst new gens are round the corner.

Whether your old CPU will bottleneck your new graphics card or not depends on what performance you're shooting for.

If you're looking at a fairly solid 144fps to match the latest monitor refreshes in modern games then yes, it will most definitely bottleneck it and quite significantly too. I can say this with confidence, because my Sandy Bridge 2700K can bottleneck when aiming for this framerate and it's faster than your FX8350.

However, if you're just looking at a nice easy 60fps with no frame drops, then it will most likely be fine and an overclock wouldn't hurt, either.

To get the best out of your card though, I say wait for reviews of Intel's upcoming Kaby Lake which will offer a really large performance increase over your FX8350 and decide then if you wanna spend the money.

There will be a glass ceiling using that PCIe2.0 16x (1-2%) as well as the AMD CPU in many titles. That said, it is what it is. I wouldn't upgrade your system until at least Zen comes out.

Would you say that at least a solid 60fps in most games at 1080p should be easy to achieve with his FX8350 and GTX 1070?

Absolutely. Even much higher than that...

... though there will be a glass ceiling, I still wouldn't upgrade it. ;)

Yeah, definitely wait for Kaby Lake or maybe Zen before making any decision.

I would just get the GPU, as others have said the bottleneck will be limited only in extreme CPU situations or (as stated above) trying to do well above 60hz.

If anything just overclock the CPu for now and wait on a complete upgrade till some new chips come out.

Yeah, unless you going for some high fps you will be fine.

Though, really you could of just held onto the 970, and waited till next year by then there would be Zen, Kaby Lake, and of course Volta. More bang for buck jump then. One good rule to go off of: Only upgrade if you have a game not running playable for you or at least at the settings you want it to run at.

It depends at what resolution and monitor refresh rate you will be playing at ...

If you are playing at 1080p 60hz then go with the 970

If you are playing at 1440p with 60hz-144hz go with the 1070.

I would know because I had a FX 6300 with GTX 970 SLI and it would bottleneck with BF4, Witcher 3, and other demanding games in the resolution I wanted to play in (1440p 144hz).

I currently upgraded to FX 8370 @ 4.5ghz and it plays a lot of demanding games with ease in ultra settings in 1440p 144hz. I do have a GSYNC monitor (which helps). Demanding games are anywhere from 60-90 FPS on ultra settings (Witcher 3, BF4, Batman Arkham Knight, Doom, etc...).

I aint keeping the gtx970.
Im getting the gtx 1070 and giving my gpu to a friend. The gtx 1070 is inminent in my rig :)

Subjective question as it depends on the game. I've seen a 6700k overclocked to 4.6Ghz bottleneck the Titan Pascal in Starcraft 2 and H1Z1. These are single threaded games and as such will more than likely be limited by CPU. Other games like "OverWatch" which is almost entirely GPU, will experience no bottleneck at all.

I would get the 1070 and wait for Zen if you want to upgrade the CPU eventually. You should try and overclock the 8350 to 4.6-5Ghz to reduce your single core bottleneck for the time being.

4.7 is easy to obtain 5.0+ is difficult to say the least.

Actually not even sure why you are ditching 970 for 1070. Your overall rig is (or was) fine.

Why not? It's a way better performer and it sets his computer up for a mobo/cpu/RAM upgrade.


4.7 is easy to obtain 5.0+ is difficult to say the least.

You've got that right. My 8350 could only get 4.8 stable. My 8320 has sat at a nice 4.95 for the past few months. The jump in voltage for me to achieve 5.1 is a little too much.
