    Hi, does my PC have a bottleneck? Cause I think it's underperforming.

    I have a feeling the CPU is bottlenecking my GPU since I can only run BF4 medium-high at 40 FPS on siege of shanghai and Arma runs at 40 at medium-high settings too and sometimes it drops to 30 for both games. Am I just expecting too much of the PC? If I upgrade the CPU, would it make a big performance increase? (to be honest, I only got the FX 4300 cause the price of the FX 6300 rose by like 40 euro and I was on a tight budget)

    Specs:
    CPU: FX 4300 3.8 ghz Quad core.
    GPU: R9 270 Dual-X Edition 2GBs of VRAM.
    RAM: 8GBs of Kingston HyperX RAM
    (I'll post the other specs if needed, I don't think the other specs matter right now)
    Temps are fine too, last time I checked. max temps from GPU were like 65-70C

    I suppose you're expecting a bit too much of the FX-4300 you have installed. If you have the cash, try and upgrade it to a FX6300/8320/8350

    I was thinking an Intel CPU but, i'll give the 8320 a look.

    Cool
    Your CPU is definitely a bottleneck. I would look for an FX 8320/8350 as you would be able to use the same motherboard.

    It is just a small bottleneck,even if you upgrade your cpu don't expect too much performance boost.

    Just install a performance monitor and check your GPU and CPU utilization.
    It will be very apparent which of the two is the one capping out.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    40fps With BF4 on high with a r9 270 and a fx 4300? Seems normal to me. My old fx 6300 with a R9 280x would get like 50-60 fps on high in bf4... FX was bottlenecking the GPU.

    There is no way that CPU is your bottleneck. It is just normal that you get 40 fps with such configuration.
