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? m 0 l Tradesman1 a c 602 à CPUs a c 290 À AMD December 19, 2013 5:29:52 PM 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 m 0 l Technew11 December 19, 2013 5:34:12 PM 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?

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. m 0 l Tradesman1 a c 602 à CPUs a c 290 À AMD December 19, 2013 6:03:07 PM Will be around m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
