probably yes maybe a little bit of oc will help but don't forget how this GPUs support mantle so in games with mantle (battlefield 4) the bottleneck will be less than the others,google it if you want to find more details about it

Yes. FX-4130 is a pretty powerful CPU which only slightly bottlenecks a few of the very high end GPUs

sry.. it will be bottlenecked by that processor!! get atleast i5-4440… though 4130 is a powerful cpu, but due to dual core its not recommend for playing modern games on higher resolutions like 900p or 1080p!!
