Best GPU to pair with FX-8300

Hey folks,
Sorry, I know this was asked in the past, but it's been a few months and the research I've done only come up with recommendations to purchase an Intel CPU or go with video cards that came out before Pascal.
I have an FX-8300 running @3.5GHz with 8GB DDR3. What would be the perfect GPU for it for gaming?

Thanks in advance for all helpful replies.

    I would go with GTX 1060 6GB or RX580.

    RX580's are a little hard to find at this moment.

    It's just a guide which was tested with certain limitations. Here are some notes from the source: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-3192807/ultimate-bottlenecking-guide.html

  4. ^ interesting & fairly useful upto a point .
    Inaccurate though mainly because it doesn't account for overclocking.

    Regarding op's actual question I would not go above a 580 4gb & more likely a 570 4gb depending on market prices.

  5. ^Yes. A LOT of factors to be considered that really can't be put in a simple chart. But at the least, eliminating some obvious bad CPU-GPU pairing will help.
