Only you can possibly know that by checking CPU and GPU load in your games. Any of them hitting 100% or thereabouts of load is potential bottleneck. Depending on a game, either one could be insufficient,

The R3-1300X is roughly about an i5-6400 equivalent in gaming, and with 4c/4t CPUs having been long since considered 'thread challenged', with most unable to think of any reason why they would not still be thread challenged in many/most of the games out within the last 2-3 years...

The R5-1600 is the new bargain-gaming thread master machine, especially when/if you can find it on sale for $79-$89 bundled with a B350, etc......

Depending on what games, yes, by a lot. Up to 50% of bottleneck.

You should upgrade to Ryzen 1600 (at least) and you will have a massive improvements on gameplay.

Ryzen 1300 have roughly the same performance that very old Core i5 like 2500 or 3470. Not only that, it's a 4 cores and 4 threads CPU. Modern games demands at least 4 cores and 8 threads CPUs, preferably 6 threads and 12 cores.
