Fx6100 Bottlenecking HD7770 CF/HD7970?

One of my friend is letting go his computer. I'm thinking if I could get this for my brother as his birthday present. He's been using for not more than 4 months and offers me around $800 with a 17' Monitor+Speakers.

Specs
AMD Fx6100 Overclock 4.7 ghz
ASUS Sabertooth 990fx
Gigabyte 7770 Crossfire
CORSAIR H100 Liquid Coolong System
Cooler Master 1000w Sielent Gold Pro (
Corsair 1666Mhz 8GB
Intel SSD 120GB / WD 1TB





I've read some posts regarding about 6100 bottlenecking. N
I'm not sure cuz my friend told me that he can max out BF3 but did not tell me how many FPS he got (forgotten).

Now I'm thinking that is there any hold backs? the fx6100 and 7770 CF.
If no problem. Will it be fine with 7970?
If yes, what about CF 7970?

Sorry for my poor grammar. I'm not a native English speaker. =/

  1. Will it bottleneck CF 7770? Maybe. It depends on the game
    Will it bottleneck a 7970? It will, but it largely depends on the game - many times it will still perform well
    CF 7970? Definitely going to bottleneck. But if you can afford that, why not pop a FX8350 in it?
