Im planning to upgrade sometime this month from a EVGA Gtx 1050TI sc to a Vega56, Would the cpu bottlneck the GPU? or would I have to upgrade the CPU?
 
This is the motherboard I have, from what I know you can not overclock your cpu on this

Since you play a CPU intensive game, instead of the Vega 56, you could get an i7-8700. Then, you could sell your8350K for $150ish. Sell your 1050 Ti for $100ish. Then, buy a GTX 1660 Ti, RX 590, GTX 1660, or RX 580.

And if you were tight on money, you could get an i5.. even an i5-9400 is better for gaming than the 8350K (in CPU intensive games).

Yea it seems like a good idea, Its my birthday in 3 weeks, So I would get 300ish pounds for it, The 9400 seems like a good idea but its only 2.9ghz, and Im pretty sure my motherboard dosent support overclocking. Yeah basically what im saying is my budget if I sold my CPU + GPU would be 300 pounds

Yeah, but it doesn't really run at that. It has Turbo Boost up to 4.1GHz, which means it will likely run all 6 cores around 3.8GHz at the same time.

I'm not sure if you are saying you will end up with 300 pounds for your birthday and another 300 pounds for your CPU and GPU, or just 300 pounds total.
