My current specifications are :
FX6100 --- amd radeon hd 6870

The one I choose would also have to work with a 500 w psu.

I would probably overclock the FX 6100 if you have not and get the 660.

8350 is not worth it over a 6100 IMO esp. if you overclock the heck out of the 6100.

Yeah, the FX-8350 is not worth buying for a gaming system IMO unless you hate Intel, but want the best that you can get regardless of price. There is an argument to be made for the FX-6300, but at that point, it's getting very close to the cheaper i5s in price. If you want more CPU performance, then go for a Radeon 7850 for graphics and get a cheap after-market CPU cooler such as a Zalman Optima or a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus or Evo.

buying 8350 wont make much difference. fx 6100 is fine. overclock it with a descent cooler to about 4.5GHz, and get a 660. Dont get an amd card coz u r putting a considerable amount of money but still u wont get Physx. See borderlands 2 with and without physx, see arkham city and of course crysis 3! AMD supports physx but CPU has to do all the work,. SO, go for gtx 660 , and fx 6100 is fine :D
