Without a bit more money +plus Intel, there is honestly nothing for you to get.
But your bottleneck should be minimal anyway(now if you had two 280's in crossfire, different story).

Your system is decent. If you need better fps for some games, just lower your resolution a bit.
What is your monitor? 1080p?

At $120 - tops would be like a 6300, might be better off just taking your OC up, think should be able to hit 4 anyway

I have a 720p monitor at mo, I have overclocked it at 4ghz going to run prime 95 for a bit and report back

What's the difference between 6100 vs 6300?

Cheers

Little to nothing - the 6300 has a .2 higher base clock, that's why I said prob just better off OCing the 6100

Ya, even a 8350 wouldn't be much good to you. AMD piledriver architecture is just weak. And old... with 2014 right around the corner you don't want a "new" CPU's dating to 2012.

Stick with what you have. Or get a new Asus Z87 board and an Intel 4670K.
