I am going to build a new system I have a r9 280x and want to get a a10-7850k. But I have looked and no one can answer it up front I see yes it will bottleneck and no so I come to the people that own it please help me out. Does the a10-7850k bottleneck r9 280x or even crossfire it. Yes if it does for sure I'll get the fx8350. Thanks

It won't crossfire with the a10-7850's IGP, but if your mobo supports crossfire then no problem, just buy another 280x.

Buy FX CPU if you are thinking of power gaming.
