    What resolution are you gaming at? The 6100 is a great budget CPU. I'm sure you'll be fine gaming with it at 1080p. Just be sure to get some fast ram as it scales really well with Skylake & a SSD drive.

    Nothing wrong with that. It'll be a good build for that resolution , even at 1080p when you decide to upgrade your monitor in the future, you will probably be good at 1440p with medium to high settings depending on the game.

    I run a 6100 with a 1060 and 16gigs of ram @ stock. Far cry 4, Witcher 3, BF 4, GTA V and whatever else I throw at it can easily handle 60 frames @1080p on high. Every once in a my framerate drops to the high 40s, but that's as low as Ive seen, and it doesn't last for more than a split second.


    It's a great 1080p setup without breaking the bank.


    @2k I imagine this setup may have issues keeping 60+, with 4k don't even bother. But for 1080p and under, you're golden.
