  1. The FX6300 should game just as well since very few if any games can utilize the additional thread handling of the 8320.
  2. Best answer
    The 8 core 8320 would be better for Battlefield 4 but you should pick a solution that best fits the budget.
  3. because all im really doing is gaming and surfing the web.So should I just go with the fx-6300?

    Oh ok thanks!
    btw is 8320 better for bf4 because it uses 8 cores?
  5. I would go with the 6300 and OC it a bit, it will game just fine.
  6. The FX board is better and if you have USB 3 front panel on the case the m5a97le does not have onboard plug for it.
    I would go with the FX board but here is a better version of the 970 board with USB3 front panel plug http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-m5a97r20
  7. ^+1 to the non-le M5A970 R2.0, if you're not going to crossfire or go for a big overclock, you don't need the 99fx, i have the 970 R2.0 in one rig and it's a great board.

    +1 I also have the M5A97 R2.0 and it is a really good board.
  9. The FX-6300 might bottleneck the card in some cpu intensive games. I would recommend the FX-8320 or even an Intel core i5 processor
  10. oc the 6300 to 4.5 and it will be better if not on par with the 8320. no games utilize 8 cores yet.

    Pretty sure BF4 and Crysis 3 do.
