What is bottlenecking my pc?

So, my specs are:
AMD FX-6100
AMD Radeon r9 270
HyperX 1866 8gb
650 watt pcu
Asus M5A97
1TB hdd+ 120gb SSD (SSD has games and windows on it)
So, the problem is: every goddamn game I run, I can't get the fps out of that I should be getting. For example in counter strike global offensive I'm running even at 70 fps when it gets messy regardless of the video settings, I know that my gpu has more than enough power to run the game 200´+ fps with 8xAA all maxed, I've seen it happen.
But the question here is that what is bottlenecking my gpu then? I heard some bad stuff about fx-6100 but not too sure about it...
Thanks

    Most likely it is cpu, 6100 is the older platform, zambezi which is a noticable step bellow the newer vishera.

    A fx-6300 would be a setp up, but if you are going to spend the money then you should get an fx-8320 or fx-8350 if budget allows.

    Make sure your mobo supports the newer visheras, it is same socket and should support it, but might need bios update.

    Alright thanks, no worries I'm running the latest bios update. What a shame I happened to buy this piece of shit from all of those, and the price difference between 6100 and 8350 or 8250 isn't even that big. Thanks for the help!
  3. The FX-6100 is indeed a disappointing performer. If you overclock it some, do you see improvement? That may help, but even then might not get you as far as you'd like.
    For further improvement, you'll either need to upgrade it to something like a FX-8320 and overclock that, or rebuild completely, using an Intel CPU.
  4. I had a fx6100 when they first cam out and I was getting lousy fps with a hd 6870. I ended up returning the system and getting Intel. The good news is that the new amd chips are much better so you could just upgrade to the 8320 and be good to go

    I overclocked it once to 4,5 ghz with 4 cores and it was running stable, no fps improvement whatsoever.
    Also tried 6-core overclock to 4.0 and still no affection. I'm just gona go for the 8350

    If you overclocked your cpu and saw no improvement what so ever, then it may be that your video card is the bottleneck. The r9 270 isn't exactly top tier. What resolution are you running, and what kind of settings are selecting in game?

    all maxed, expect 8xAA, a friend of mine is running all maxed 16xAA with same graphics card 200+ fps.
