I have a problem with deciding what cpu mobo ram to get, i want to play games , new ones with max settings at full hd resolution + heavy multitasking. I will do overcloking, and i want to get the max out of the CPU. I have a Scythe MUGEN 3 PCGH cooler, so in my country the prices are :

8320 - 255 $
8350 - 293 $ (yeah i know 3570k , but in croatia its like 344 $)

i would not use crossfire or sli setup, i will get a 7950/7970 in 2 months or so or wait for the 8000 series , for now it will be a radeon 7770 (xfx DD )

memory prices are difficult as well 8 gigs at 1866 (rippjaws X or sniper series - 112$) , wanted to get 16 gigs just for my heavy multitasking but 8 gigs is fine for now), or is it no performance difference with 1600mhz ram ?

the motherboard i wanted is : GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3 - 143$

if you have other suggestions i'm open to it

i'm getting a cpu + mobo + ram, nothing else (PSU is already there no worry's about that)

my budget is max 650$ ofc i want to get the lowest possible combination out of this and the OC part is pretty important to me

Go with the 8320. It is the same chip as the 8350. Just has the multiplier set lower. In an FX system, you won't see much difference if any between 1600 and 1866. A series APU's are the only ones that really benefit from faster ram and that is only on the graphics side of the APU. Other components look fine.

The AMD FX-8320 along with the GB GA-970A-UD3 motherboard should handle things nicely, even before any system tweaking.

Th Fx 8350 are higher binned. They'll hit the same OC's on less voltage.

The 8320 is a good overclocker too, but it'll take a bit more vcore to get the same/higher clocks.

If the FX-6300 positions you to go for the HD7970 over the HD7950 ...

Go for it! :bounce:
