Let's say it that way, you will be able to play every game at 30 fps but changing the graphics to minimum or ultra won't make any bigger difference than 4-5 fps at best. The gpu will still render just as good but the total fps will be lower. To be fair, I had fx 4100 with 1060 which should be slower by a good margin and yet it was a huge bottle-neck.

so better go with fx 6100/6300 hexa and oc it to 4.0/4.2GHz?

Your GPU is at 1070 performance, heck, even an 8350 will be bottlenecking but I'd say 6300 is a decent choice, 6100 not so much.
but for me basic frequency doesnt mean anything, even boost, i will OC it to MINIMUM 4GHz, and there is no difference between fx 6100 and 6300 in case of same clock speed, or there is?

When you say go with does that mean you do not have a cpu? The whole FX series and AM3+ cpu’s have weak single core performance and not something I would recommend investing any money in if your aim is to play modern AAA games.
i have fx 4300 oc to 4.2, dont want to change MB

Depending on motherboard a 125w cpu may be a bad idea. Although many boards claim to support them they often end up throttling the cpu due to weak VRM design. The FX6xxx might help in games that can use more than 4 cores/threads but in games that use 4 or less you won’t see any benefit. Even in the best case the gains are not going to be substantial, it probably comes down to how cheap the cpu is. At this point investing money in what is an obsolete platform is hard to recommend, if you don’t get the gains you want it is wasted money.
