Depends on the game. In some games, the FX 6300 is faster, in others the i3 is faster. Here's a review comparing both:-

I am probably going to go with the gtx 650 ti boost GPU and will be doing alot of rendering/recording as well as gaming. What would you recommend for my current situation?

6300 because it has more cores, it can be overclocked, it is better overall. The 3220 (the best i3 out at the moment) is the same price and is faster core for core, but it only has two of them. The 2 extra threads from HT won't help if you are gaming. If you are using it for something else such as video editing or 3D rendering then it is used but an i7 is much better for those applications.


Er, that's only somewhat correct. The two HT cores will help in gaming. In terms of gaming, both trade blows because certain games prioritize few and faster cores while others prioritize more cores, albeit doing less work per cycle.

Because the OP is going to be doing a bit of rendering and recording I would recommend going with the FX6300 since the extra physical cores make a big difference in that arena.

Thanks for the advice, i have come to the decision of the fx 6300.
Along with the msi gtx 650 ti boost oc edition will that make a good combination for recording/rendering/gaming???

Yes it will. They are both comparable tiers of hardware. I'm assuming your budget for your graphics card is around $150?

Well in Australia the prices are extremely high so yea around the 150 equivalent here. (approx 200-220)

Ah ok. Then yea the 650 ti boost is your best bet. I was gonna say try for the AMD HD 7870 if you can afford it, but if prices are that high its not worth it.
