Today we’re revisiting the classic $600 AMD FX-8300 build I did back in Feb 2017. Does installing a GTX 1660 bring new life to the FX 8300, or is it time to bury this CPU in the past?

These 3 cards are listed in order of performance, however they aren’t actually that far apart in general. Under $200 for the first card, just over $200 for the Super, and under $250 for the TI are the current going rates.
Yes, AMD made a LOT of different 8 core FX models… this isn’t a complete list either, but it’s 5 of the more common models you can find today.
