Sapphire Nitro RX 480 OC 4GB or Sapphire Nitro+ 470 4GB for i3 6100

I originally was planning to get a 1050ti but after much research saw that the 470 would be better but the 470 I found is like only $12 cheaper than the 480 but I fear my procc will bottleneck the gpu?

    According to this, there'll only be a slight bottleneck http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/id-3192807/ultimate-bottlenecking-guide.html

    Is a tricky choice for sure. I'd guess there'd be fairly heavy bottleneck in some games. Someone with the same setup says it's ok though http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-3262329/sharing-intel-6100-skylake-radeon-480-findings.html

    That should be enough for me I guess. By the way would a 450w Corsair PSU be sufficient for a rx 480? Not planning to overclock.
  3. Again, it'd be touch n go I think, as the recommended PSU for that Saphire Nitro 480 is 500w, bt in my experience they always over estimate it a bit, and like you say, without any seriously OC it should be plenty, especially with an i3.

    You'll at least get the very most out of your system, and that card is a really good one for 1080p gaming.
