If you do go for the fx-6000 series, why don't you get a newer version?

Depends on the power supply and motherboard, if your psu is 450w and rated 80 plus bronze or higher, then absolutely. If its not rated well, lets say 50% or 55% which is common for lower quality psu's, then your looking at a 450w supply that will deliver 200 watts, then since its an fx chip and you need a gpu, I would say you'd need to upgrade your psu and your cpu.

But also agree, don't I mean don't upgrade to a 6100, go 6300 or no 6000 series at all. the 6300 is a huge step up over the 6100.
