  1. hey buddy , stick with this build , it's great for the price/performance ( nice CPU choice :) but the 8350 would be better for an future proof )

    yes you can run crysis 3 on max with 30 FPS

    what games do you play ?

    ya it's good enough to run all of this games with good FPS , as example :

    Battlefield 3 withh run at Ultra setting 1920 x 1080 with more than 65 ~ 70 FPS on your system

    am using the FX-8350 ( not that far away from yours ) with HD 7870 which is worse than yours by 11 % and getting more than 70 FPS in Battlefield 3 Ultra setting 1080p .
  4. should i upgrade to a 8350? like would there be a noticeable difference?

    For now , it would be no noticeable difference !!

    but if you are looking for an future proof , get the FX-8350 since it has higher clock speed and you can overclock it at the future to 5 GHz with good cooler

    you can take the FX-8320 and overclock it to 4.0 to get the same performance as the FX-8350 for now .
    but at the future you can't overclock it more than 4.2 i think .

    you decide of it worth getting the FX-8350 for extra ~ 30$
  6. well where i live its actually another $50 and is clockspeed really even that important in gaming?

    wow 50 $ !! Stick with the FX-8320 then .

    ya it's that Important if we are talking about 2 similar CPUs with different Clock speeds , the higher would be better for sure , but it's only few frames per second :) .
  8. is my current motherboard good for overclocking?
    (gigabyte GA-970A-D3)

    it's not the best for overclocking but yes , you can overclock your CPU using it .

    i have the ASUS M5A97 R2.0 and i can overclock my CPU using it ( same chipset - AMD 970 - )

    buddy , choose the best answer if you want to close this thread .
  10. well since its only another $20, i guess ill go with it. thank you for all your help.
