I look at it like this AMD CPU + AMD GPU thats a great combination right?  I want the radeon r290 non X, I was wondering if my cpu will bottleneck the card. Am hopeing not if so how much of a bottle neck were looking at here -2fps or -6fps ? I want amd paired with amd. am not upgradeing my cpu any time soon If I do am going with intel.. and nvidia. So I really would hate to here a anwser I dont want to here like your cpu will bottleneck that powerful card.
