Hi All,


I've been wondering about the paring of CPU/APU and GPU in the AMD world.

On the latest FX 9000 Series there was just little comment about best with R9 GPU

AMD FX™ 9000 Series Processor System Requirements


So far I've been unable to find something for the FX 8000 Series about GPU's if a R7 or R9 would be best paring.


Some guidance on this would be nice as matching a FX 8370 with R9 Fury X for example could be a costly mistake if CPU would be the bottleneck.


By the way the same is true for the APU A10 its for lower level gaming its clear you don't need the GPU as the APU has them built in but if you want to add some extra FPS what GPU cards are best R7 or R9 ?
