I have an AMD fx 4350 and I recently got a gtx 690 for a cheap price, however there have been problems while trying to play games. I can't even start up a game without its audio and video stating to stutter and eventually crashing. I my CPU bottlenecking my gpu? Will an AMD FX 8350 fix this problem

My first guess would be a bad card. You said you got a "deal" on it, perhaps it's dying and that's the problem. Test in another system if possible. Might be a driver issue as well. Try removing the old drivers with a driversweeper and reinstall the new ones.
