I bought FX-6300 couple of months ago and i very satissfied with it. Now im looking to buy graphics card and im very insterested in R9 280x, so my question is, IS this processor powerfull enough for that graphics card ?

I dont want to spend over 300 euros on graphics if im gonna get bottleneck by CPU.

The answer is a bit complicated because it depends on the games that you play and how well they are written for multi-core processors. Some properly written games run up to 50% faster with the AMD FX processors but not all. With poorly written games the full potential of the R9 280X will not be used.

The  R9 280X is probably a good match for the FX-6300, IMO. I'm sure there will be online test results with the FX-6300 but you may need to wait a bit for them.
