    There is no wonder your gaming is laggy with a GT 610. GT 610 is not a gaming card. For gaming get yourself a 650 or better. I personally have a GTX 660. With a better graphics adapter you should be fine with the FX-6100. Make sure your power supply will support a better graphics adapter as well.

    The specifications for the GTX 660 calls for a 450W or greater. The GTX 650 Ti calls for a 400W or greater. I wouldn't try a GTX 670 as it calls for a 500W, and 480W is under spec.

    With that said though you could probably run a GTX 670 in a system with only 400W's of power. The specifications are made with lots of headroom and calculated for the average system running every component at full power. Which powering every component is hardly ever done, making the recommended power overkill. Still though, I will never advise using less than the recommended. So even though you probably could run a GTX 670 (and 680 for that matter), nVidia does not recommend it, and I have chosen to trust in their generic judgement.
