Yes, I would start looking at a FX 6300.
at stock clock, 1100T offer almost same fps in gaming..
Even this old processor is stronger in massive threading program than fx6300 despite lower clock..
From 1100T to fx6300 seems like a sidegrade or even downgrade.
We can assume fx8350>fx1100>fx6300
Yes, overclock is the only way.
1100T is a good cpu.
With decent cooling and good motherboard, it'll reach 4GHz easily and even touch 4.2Ghz.
