r9 380 for modded skyrim?

So the rig I usually play on has a fx-6300 and a 270x, and I can run 105 mods with it, at around 30-50 fps. If I get an r9 380 (with a xeon e3 1231v3), how many mods should I expect to run, and at what fps? thanks!

The game will break before you get lag.

I managed almost 300 then the game wouldn't even load up and I couldn't single out the mod that was conflicting. Very frustrating.

I mean, if I could manage a crap ton of mods on an FX 6300, I wouldn't spend more than $200.

Not constructive at all, but I love your profile picture. I have it as my windows wallpaper and log in screen and have had it like that for months, 10/10. For the constructive side of this comment, honestly just get the best gpu that you can afford and if possible OC your 6300. Skyrim is cpu bound when it is in a vanilla state from what I can recall but doesnt use heaps of cores that well so higher clocks on cores will help, and with mods it gets quite gpu intensive, hence I state the better gpu over cpu as you gain "free" performance when you OC.

You sir, have saved me a ton of stress. Thank you so much for that heads up... probably gonna dual-boot or just go with Windows 7.
