    take the FX-8320 it's much better than the FX-6300 since it's 8 cores processor which means more future proof for future gaming , btw the next gen consoles are using 8 cores

    FX-8320 for 160$ , it's the best processor in the world for the price

  2. A 7870 blows the consoles away - and you guessed it - there are better gpus than that.
