Okay so I bought the FX-6300 this week, and when I first got it the BF4 beta was running like **** and so I went ahead and bought the FX-8320. Thing is, after the last patch the BF4 beta is running much better now on my FX-6300. Because of this I feel like I shouldn't of bought the 8320, I haven't gotten it in the mail yet though.
When I do get it in the mail, should I keep or just sell it back online? Is it all around better than the FX-6300? Does it consume a lot more energy too and will my PSU be able to handle it?
Here are the rest of my specs:
8 GB DDR3 1600
Radeon HD7850 900mhz core, 1200mhz boost
COOLER MASTER Elite 460 PSU
GA-78LMT-USB3 MicroATX motherboard
You should never really bsae anything off a beta stage of the game that 8320 bought was a bit impulsive i think.
There is not much diference the 6300 will handle BF4 with no problem.
So i would just return the 8320 and keep the fx6, if you ever feel like you need more power later on, you can always update later to a 8350 and switch around some more things like the GPU (required you get a better PSu as well).
Thanks for the responses. After yet another update, the BF4 beta is playing really smooth now on my FX-6300. Honestly, if it were playing this good from the beginning I would of been fine with the FX-6300, but since I already bought the FX-8320 (and yeah it was an impulse buy) I think I'm just going to go ahead and keep it and sell the 6300. Although the FX-8320 power consumption kind of concerns me.
