    So i am planning on upgrading my PC and i was wondering should i worry about a CPU bottleneck since after the upgrade this will be my specs: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/YKystp

    Please keep in mind that this build will probably be used for atleast next 2-3, maybe even 4-5 years and that my budget for upgrading is no more than 600 euros.

    Thanks in advance!

    Are you buying FX-8300 or you already have it?

    Either way, it has very weak IPS. Consider Ryzen instead.

    The most budget built I can think right now is going with Ryzen APU.

    3200G/3400G + AM4 motherboard.

    I already have an FX

    I am planning to upgrade RAM, GPU and to put in some SSD storage.

    Are you plan to use PC for gaming? What is monitor resolution and refresh rate you plan to game on?

    For 60FPS, FX-8300 might hold, but be prepared for frame drops.
    Still, see how your FX-8300 holds up, if you feel like your having issues with CPU load, consider upgrading.
    Meanwhile, try to overclock your FX-8300.

    Once you decide to upgrade, I'd recommend below:

    Ryzen 2600 is around $120.
    Asus Prime B450M is around $80.
    You will also need DDR4 memory, 16GB DDR4 is around $80.

    So total $280 for CPU/MoBo/RAM.

    sverek is right, even if you pair the fx8300 with a rtx2080ti, games fps will drop below 60fps and give you stutter experience. Thats the limit of the cpu in year 2020.

    i suggest you put money into new parts rather than old parts, the new parts will go a long long way.
    as for cpu, i can recommend ryzen 5 1600AF, 2600, 2600x, 3600.

    Ryzen 5 3600 will cost you $199 and theres already sale bringing it down to $179 and its a really good cpu for what it can do.

    If it was me i'd get the Ryzen 5 3600, B450 Msi Tomahawk, 16GB DDR4 3200mhz (3600mhz if you want to spend more).

    The listed specs above will cost more than sverek listed but in my opinion it is worth it.
