Ok so I am moving from console gaming, since I am just plain bored of it and want change so i'm going to get into pc gaming. I will have Just around eight hundred ($800) dollars to spend on it. This does not include the monitor, keyboard, or os. I have a build in mind but would like to hear your opinions first. I would like to play games like Battlefeild, Far Cry, Crisis, among many others on highest settings possible in this price.
Thank you for your expertise,

Thank you for the quick reply. The build I put together looks a lot like this just I put the fx6300 with the 7959. Do you think the 8320 would be the better option?

The 8320 will perform just as well.

Ok so you would sugest the 8320 over the 6300 is there a big difference. I've heard its better sometimes to have less cores that are more efficient then more that arnt is this true
