  1. Why the FX 6100?
  2. The FX is the stronger CPU
    http://www.game-debate.com/cpu/index.php?pid=912&pid2=792&compare=core-i3-3220-3-3ghz-vs-fx-6100
    But it is still a weak CPU compared to slightly more expensive ones which make it worth spending the extra money
  3. i would take the i3, unless you're talking a fx6300. a 6300 i'd take over the i3
  4. Think i3 3220 vs AMD FX-6300. Do you like oc? Go FX-6300. If not go i3 3220 or i3 3240 or, even better, Core i5-3350P.

    So what would you recommend (slightly more expensive wise)? as I'm also looking for cpus around this price level.

    Depends what that store your getting the PC parts from has in stock (Can you not order online?). If they have a FX-6300 or better if they have a FX-8320 go for those.

    FX 6300 is the most value for the money at that price point...by a LONG way...
