Possible CPU bottleneck?

I have a Zotac GTX 970 and an FX-6300 @ 4.1Ghz OC... Do you think there will be much of bottleneck? I know for a fact there was at the stock 3.5Ghz... feedback please? Much appreciated!

not really with most games. even if it does in a particular game, it won't be unplayable.

Depends on the game. Some newer games like battlefield 4 and Far Cry 4 (far cry sometimes maxes out two cores on my i5

Why do you think that? When I asked about r9 280x bottlenecking, few guys told me that FX 6300 wouldn't bottleneck 290x. GTX 970 is 35% better than 280x on gamedebate GPU compare. Also, he overclocked his CPU

Trust me when I say this, my friend's sister has an fx6300 with an r9 290 and she gets significantly lower fps and scores in benchmarks than my system which also has a 290 but I have a 4670k.

what about R9 280x, will FX 6300 bottleneck it?

It's hard to say since there is a bit of a gap between the 290 and 280X. I'm thinking that there might be a slight performance hit compared to having an i5 or something along that line but you shouldn't be impacted too much. Even if you do go with the 290, you'll still have better performance than a 280X.
