The fx 6300 would be a bad
match for the gtx 1080.
Minimum cpu I would pair with
an 1080 would be an i5 6600k.
How would you know this?
Please show us your proof of this claim.

Hi All,I have been given a gaming PC and it has been so long since I have been invloved in hardware that I have no idea where it stands.The bottom line Is I want to buy at GTX 1080 and put it straight into this box (it will fit). Will my CPU or Motherboard bottle neck it? Is it worth doing?Can you please give me advice on what I should do?The box has in it:Motherboard - M5A78L-M/USB3 (I believe this board is PCIe 2.0 16 x 1 as that what it reads on the board itself - https://www.asus.com/au/Motherboards/M5A78LMUSB3/gallery/RAM - 16GB Giel RAM DDR3Power Supply 500w CougerCurrent GPU - AMD Radeon R7 370 ( I belive this card is PCIE 3.0)Do I need to build from scratch to get this card and it be worth it? or can I just slot it in? or do I need to replace some things?Thanks for all your help
Keep it as is, except for 2 items.
Upgrade the Power supply unit and graphics card.

Yes, it should work. You meant RX 480, right?

Yes, those parts should work together. PCI Express 3.0 should not be problem, R7 370 is PCI Express 3.0.
