AMD FX-6350 vs AMD FX-8320

I'm currently going through the process of choosing components for a custom pc but I don't know if it's worth paying an extra £25 for a FX 8320 and perhaps "future proofing" my build or if it might be just as good to chose a 6350?

I may also overclock the processor, but that won't be for a fair amount of time, so which one would be best?

More about : amd 6350 amd 8320

The FX8320 is a good "future proof" option. It has 8 cores that are optimized for multi-threaded applications and lots of room to overclock.

Fz8320 is havin more core so for future games this is bttr and most of the games in future wud be utilizing more cores so get the 8320 and its a good cpu in terms of o.c. Too

If u wanna overclock the CPU, better get a good CPU cooler.

Please don't brag about the AMD's cores. AMD's cores are not actually true cores like Intel's. So I don't see how that 8 (fake)cores are better in being future proof than the 4 (true)cores of an Intel i5... :D

What do you mean they are fake cores?

Vishera has 2 integer cores, 1 floating point unit, and some shared L2 cache per module.

They are even phyiscally on the die, too.

I mean fake cores because they are actually what AMD call modules,and don't actually do what the cores are expected to do. Like you said,they have 2 integer cores,and for those 2,they have only one Floating point unit.That's a module,as in AMD's words.Actually,a true or real core will have 1 FPU for 1 Integer core.But AMD has only 1 FPU for 2 integer cores. So,you can't say whether AMD actually has 8 cores,or is it just 4. It's a confusing idea.
In an Intel CPU,there's 1 FPU for 1 integer core.So that's actually A CORE. Intel calls it a core,while the AMD call theirs' a Module. The problem with the AMD ones is,when an integer core is working,it is using the resources,which is shared in common by the same core,and another integer core.So,with that being the case,the other core would be left idle,since they don't have enough resources to do some processing.
Basically,cores are intended to processing,and with multiple cores,multiple processing at the same time can be done. But seeing that the AMD CPUs fail in that,why do you think I should call it true cores? I don't find a reason.
I'd rather call the FX CPUs,not an "8 core CPU",but a "4 Module CPU",or an "8 Integer core CPU"... :D

They don't fail at running 8 threads...

Who lied to you...?

So 8 thread=8 cores?
So Intel has 8 core i7s and 16 core xeons?
