For gaming the better choice will be the Phenom II 965. The bonus part is if you get a 970 or 990fx chipset motherboard, you can eventually upgrade to the latest and best Amd Cpu. Their next offering will also be based on the Am3+ socket.

You just need to make sure your motherboard supports AM3+ CPU's and that your PSU is suffice.

The difference between 970 and 990FX is a lack of SLI support from the 970 chipset

i would suggest this : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

the best value CPU Available at the moment , 8 cores , overclockable , powerful for gaming .

with this motherboard .

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

both for 245 , or you can get cheaper motherboard , but you won't be able to overclock with cheaper motherboards .

this is the best thing you can do with your 250 $ i guess .

btw , the FX-8320 will be better choice for you than the FX-8350 since it's cheaper by - 35 ~ 40 $ , both has the same specs but the FX-8350 has higher clock speed ( FX-8320 3.5 GHz - FX-8350 4.0 GHz ) anyway , you can overclock your FX-8320 to higher than 4.2 easily to get an FX-8350 for 160 $ only .

The FX8320 is basically an 8 core version of the 6300 and is futureproof for next gen games.

check this out :

http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_lookup.php?cpu=AMD+FX-8... - FX-8350 for 190 $
http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_lookup.php?cpu=AMD+FX-8... - FX-8320 for 160 $
http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_lookup.php?cpu=AMD+FX-6... - FX-6300 for 115 $
http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=AMD+FX-6100+Six... - FX-6100 for 119 $
http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=AMD+Phenom+II+X... - AMD Phenom II X4 965 for 135 $

which one do you prefer ?? think about Value/performance .

( the best one for Value/Performance is the FX-8320 - i suggest to you to get this and overclock it to 4 GHz to get the same performance of the FX-8350 for 160 $ only )

This way it leaves you a bit of money to invest in a good after maret CPU cooler such as the Evo 212 or Noctua NH-D14

You should get this
It would be a huge upgrade
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: AMD FX-8320 3.5GHz 8-Core Processor ($159.67 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: ASRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($84.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $244.66
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

Aftewards add a cpu cooler and u can just clock it to match it with 8350

Your way Kareem.

I think getting the FX8320, a mid-end Motherboard and a good After market CPU cooler will be a good Upgrade and his performance will be better.

+1 to this upgrade , but if you want an Asus motherboard ( since it's the best motherboards company )

you can get this on for 80 and it has the same specs as that ASrock Motherboard

Best for him to invest in a motherboard which has good quality VRM so he can overclock efficiently.

Btw , the FX-8320 stock fan(heatsink) is from coolermaster company , it's awesome for temps but it's very load since it can reach +5000 RPM

you can overclock the FX-8320 using the stock cooler .

am using the FX-8350 @ 4.2 GHz with it stock fan , the max load temps are awesome , max 60 C avg 52 C

idle temps : Max 30 C Avg 25 C

The Asus has USB 3.0 headers for a case that has USB 3.0 front ports. Also, the Asus has 6 SATA ports as opposed to 5 on the AsRock. However, the ASRock has an eSATA port . The Asus has a 3 year warranty as opposed to ASRock which has 1 year warranty. Other than that, pretty much the same features.

for me !! i would go with the Asus , But I don't think he would go wrong either way , both has pretty much the same specs .
