Hello guys, I have a gaming pc and am looking to upgrade it.

My current stats are 

  • 3.5GHz AMD FX-6300 6-Core CPU
  • MSI 970A-G46 Motherboard
  • AMD Radeon R7 370 2GB Graphics Card
  • 1TB (1000GB) Sata III Hard Drive
  • [AMD] 8GB Patriot 1600MHz DDR3
  •  
  •  

 

Now I am looking to upgrade this and I would like to know by swapping out my current parts for these 

http://pcpartpicker....n970g1gaming4gd--- Gtx 970 windforce

http://pcpartpicker....u-fd9590fhhkwof----- fx -9590

 

If I was to swap out my current cpu and gpu for them 2 parts would everything still be compatable in my system

 

Questions

Everything still compatable?

Would anything bottleneck

Would It be worth it?

Much of a performance boost?

Is the motherboard okay for this setup and does it affect performace.

 

 

 

Thank you can you please reply asap.

You could upgrade to a 9590 but I don't know how much of a difference that would be.
The 970 would be a significant upgrade from what you have.
Getting both the 9590 and 970 wouls push your psu past what I consider safe.

500W is not enough for FX 9590 and GTX 970, both use a lot of power. 750W or more is recommended.

If this is your motherboard, it will not work with the FX-9590.  The best CPU you can get with that board is the FX-8370.  Due to the power draw, few motherboards can handle the FX-9590 processors.

FX9590 is not supported by that motherboard. I recommend FX-8320 or FX-8350.

 

I don't recommend GTX970 because memory issue http://www.pcper.com/news/Graphics-Cards/NVIDIA-Responds-GTX-970-35GB-Memory-Issue and lack of future proof features http://wccftech.com/async-shaders-give-amd-big-advantage-dx12-performance-oxide-games/
