How well do you think that the AMD FX 4100 will perform in the future for games like BF4, CoD: Ghosts, etc.?

i'm running an FX-6300, and just seeing the difference between the Zambezi and Vishera chips, i'd say it won't be too long before that becomes your bottleneck (assuming a decent GPU) with how much slower the bulldozer cores are and being at only 4 of them. Then again, my CPU will probably start to bottleneck with how some of those games look... I'd suggest looking up a review for your processor, there's tons of them, and look at their gaming benchmarks for current games, with some extrapolation you'll probably be able to figure about where you'll be sitting in the future.

in short not at all well. Next gen games will require more CPU power (even cores) to be able to processed and what not. I mean it is a good CPU for this gen games but it will no suffice for next gen games I can assure you. I would say a minimum FX 6100.

Yeah, I'm looking to get the FX 6300 with maybe an AMD 7870 or some other good graphics card out there.

Very Very good CPU and a reasonable GPU.

Before you upgrade CPU, wait until you get to try the games you're waiting for. you'll have first-hand experience on its performance (no forum or benchmark can beat that). By that time, parts would also be a bit cheaper.

It's also good to have an experience on how your 4100 performs compared to your upgrade in the future.

My main rig is a 6300 with a 7870, its a killer combination. Plays everything on ultra barring crysis 3. Is say go for it as soon as you can. Newegg has a $170 7870 right now, great price.

I just realized.... people seem to be misunderstanding me :lol: 
I don't actually own the 4100.
I'm looking at two pre-build computers. I'm not looking to build one. I found one computer with an FX-6300 with 7750 and another with an FX-4100 with 7770. I'm trying to decide which one to get. I'm leaning towards the computer with the 6300. Eventually, I'll have to upgrade the GPU to play games like BF4.

Go with the 6300 since you plan on upgrading the GPU anyway. The 7750 can play most games on low to mid settings.

Goin with the 6300 system is much better and upgrade to 7870 xt version it performs at par with a gtx 760 and will have great contribution to ur fps in modern games
6300 is a lot better than a 4100



Dont go with the 4100
6300 is a good choice
