would the fx 4300 be efficient with the 760? i guess it would depend on the application.
the upper crust amd cards are just getting inflated to the sky it looks like.
In terms of bottlenecking(efficient), it should be minimal as most games today are GPU bound although the OP can always overclock the CPU to push out a little bit more performance or change out the CPU later down the road. Although if the GPU chosen was a GTX770/R9290 or above then i would avoid it or switch out to a higher end CPU. I remember some time last year, there was a review on how much bottleneck there would be when a i3 is paired with GTX680 and the performance gap was somewhat large but it was still capable of pushing out enough FPS for it to be playable.
When i saw the inflation of the R9 290X im like "O.O y u do dis AMD" as i was planning to purchase a Asus R9290X DCII for aobut $550 on Amazon as that would save me heaps of money since over here in Australia, the local price was around $800ish.
