  1. Yes but I would still want to upgrade it as soon as possible after upgrading the GT640. The Bulldozer FXs have terrible single core performance. You'd get more out of your 270x with something more powerful like a FX 6300, 6350, 8320, 8350, or even a 4300/4350.

    Ur 6100 should be fine the 270x is slight faster than the 7870, and if ur playing more multi core games it'll keep up, as cturbo said in single thread or dual core oriented games u may lose some performance.
  3. Hey,

    I'm running an FX-6100 with an R9 280x and all the games I've played have no issues being cranked up to high/ultra settings.

    Battlefield 4/Supreme Commander/EVE Online/Civ 5

    Ok, not the best line-up of games to test it but it seems to run pretty well.

    Hey is your fx-6100 OC or nah? I am also buying the r9 280x 3gb soon and want to know if I can run most games in 2015 with an older cpu and new gpu?

    Thanks in advance
