Well, the GTX1050 is marginally better than RX460(max.5%) so it all comes down to manufacturer preference(Nvidia vs AMD) or price(RX460 is a bit cheaper). GTX1050 may have a bit better FPS in games.

Hi guys, I want to upgrade to this cpu since it is cheap for the Black friday special.
Will this cpu run fine with the MSI 970A-G46 mobo?
I know the 125W TDP processors have a problem with this board but this one is 95W same as the FX-6300.
Thanks
(I am not planning to overclock)

if you have any problems with a FX-6300 or higher, just turn off the turbo mode and enjoy it without problems

technically yes but i must to add few thing you are going to upgrade practically said to dead socket no upgrade path in future… cpu itself gives additional boost over your athlon x4 but only in games where are able to utulize more then 4 cores…so you will not get that boost overall so kind odd… my advice get something from intel if you really want more smoother gaming experience or wait zen

Actually due to the way this chip is designed you should have no problem of games not utilizing all 8 cores. The cores are paired off into modules and are used and seen by your system like a quad with 8 threads.

I'd get a good aftermarket cooler (Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO for example) and overclock your CPU because you won't see that much of performance increase since games today use up to four threads (with the exceptions of course).

In my country this CPU costs about 50$ less than 8320 and about 100$ less than 8350 I see no reason not to buy it and it overclocks as a beast, I pushed it only to 20% OC but I tried it can go more.
