Could someone tell me the REAL requirements? As I think the GD benchmark here is way too high. There's no way a 100 dollar CPU could perform better than an i5.

take my advice and just don't look at game-debate for hardware comparison. check youtube videos and other benchmarks. my i3 is a lot better in gaming than this fx 8350 but this site says that fx 8350 is 20% better

Really faster of course. I personally run benchmark on i7 2600k and i7 4790. 4790 was really close to fx 8350@4.4ghz but in gaming you meet framedrops on i7 not on fx!

I think it is rated higher for overall performance, and not only in games. Yes, that link shows the g4560 performs a bit better than the fx8350, but only dx11 games were shown which has problems utilising the eight cores in the fx. Perhaps 3dmark and dx12 may show a different result.

Any gpu faster than gtx 960 and FX 8350 will bottleneck it .. even more in cpu intensive games .. but i guess you can OC it to 4.6-4.7GHz and buy RX 470 and you'll be fine ..

No you are fine with a RX 480. This CPU starts bottlenecking the 1070, but up to 480/1060 you will be good, no OC needed. Source : I own this

Hey guys, will this CPU be a bottleneck if I buy a GTX 1060 or an RX 480? If so, is there a better AMD CPU in the same price range?

No, there will be no bottleneck for GTX 1060 or RX 480. And currently, there is no better AMD CPU silicon than the 8350. 9370 and 9590 are just overclocked 8350s. However, in a few months there will be (ryzen).
