          Actually clock for clock the 1100T and 6350 are effectively identical, so your best bet would be to overclock the 1100T to 4ghz, assuming you have a decent CPU cooler, and save your money for a complete system upgrade.

            Its not just the speed Ubisoft are telling me but the actual Phenom CPU is not supported for Assassin's Creed Origins, so i think i will upgrade to AM4 and try the Ryzen CPU.

            I was going to try the AMD 9590 but have been warned it runs so hot at 225W & is not a good CPU.

            I have The Cool Master Hyper 212 EVO fan & heatsink in my case with no side on it (The heatsink is slightly too big)

            Thanks for your reply black_zion much appreciated

              Get an AM4 board and one of the more expensive 4/8 processors, games will work well with a hot graphics card with say 30 GCN cores or so
