I doubt it. Also, this CPU is old now. If you have an AM3+ board, FX 8350/70 is the highest you may go. Or go with Intel/Zen.

hate to be the bringer of bad news but, yes gpu upgrade is a must, and probably memory to. Those games would be a workout for my rig. AC unity was poorly optimized, need good mid range gpu to get good fps on that one

He wasn't asking anything. He said that he had this CPU since 2009, and that it was a good CPU. Also, he said that he did some overclock, but since the stock fan couldn't keep up, he downclocked it at the original settings, or whatever.
