Why not get a gtx 650ti boost instead of the regular 650ti. It is atleast 30-35% faster and costs just 169$

Also you can get the fx 6300 for almost 10$ cheaper..

The 6300 and 6350 are basically the same processors but the 6350 is just clocked a bit higher and hence is a bit more expensive.
I would say that stick with the fx 6300. You can always manually overclock your cpu to even higher frequencies than the stock fx 6350.

Haha ....its no so simple LOL.
For overclocking the cpu you have to go to the bios and adjust the multiplier. You may also need to increase the voltage to get higher clocks.

For overclocking the gpu....download any overclocking utility like msi afterburner and just increase the frequencies (you may need to increase the voltages to achieve higher overclocks).

You can refer to these guides for cpu overclocking..
