I want to get an FX9590 Black Edition with the water cooler and one of those ASUS Radeon R9-390X STRIX cards for it. Then, it would be such a bada$$ I would not know how to sleep anymore just knowing I had that kind of power. All I need is to add those two upgrades and I will be up with the best of them.
But, it would be a lot of money.
You would definitely have a killer system when you get the FX9590 and that 390X ! Even though you have a rock steady FX8350 already ..Have you thought of getting the 390X first and running your system to see how better it is before going on and getting that FX9590 ? Just a suggestion
I think charles4691 has the right idea. You will get a better performance increase in upgrading the GPU, than you will by upgrading the CPU. You could buy a water cooler and see if you can push the CPU you have a little bit higher.
