What is the GPU that works the best with the AMD A8-5500 APU? I want something that has little to no bottleneck with the A8-5500, and performs well in games. I heard that the AMD Radeon R9 270-285x was a good paring, but I'm not so sure.

meehhh i wouldnt invest a whole lot of money into a GPU with that setup. something like an r9 270 would be about as high as i'd go unless you were to buy a new platform/CPU. if you can get a 270 for RX 460 on the cheap it'd be perhaps OK

Actually just get whatever card you want, the cpu is generally not the bottle neck in the majority of games. It also doesn't make sense to buy a slower video card now and then buy another one when you decide to update your CPU/MB...

I think that I'll get something like the R9 270 or RX 460 as long as it doesn't cause to much trouble with the APU. And as nzalog said, I will probably upgrade my A8-5500 to whatever the best APU for the FM2 socket is. Which I think it's an A10 6800k? Also, CSGO is probably what I'll be playing the most, and that's a game that like to use the CPU more than the GPU.
