AMD FX-6200 and Sapphire R9 290x Tri-X OC

I have recently got a bigger case for my AMD Sapphire R9 290x Tri-x Overclocked and I'm pretty happy so far. However, I noticed a lot of frame drops in some games, probably because of my CPU?


CPU: AMD FX-6200

Motherboard: ASRock 970 Extreme3

PSU: Seagate 750W

GPU: AMD Sapphire R9 290X Tri-X Overclocked


I heard that my CPU is capped out on my motherboard. Is this true? Could I pick up a great CPU for my graphics card or is something else bottle-necking it?


Thank you !
