Both will be limited by the 610 office level GPU. The FX6300 is more future proof.

AMD FX 4350 4.2ghz Quad Core 12mb Cache

Or

AMD FX 6300 3.5ghz Six Core 14mb Cache

Yup, need to know the specific model. Seems as though you're comparing an FX 4300 and a FX 6300 though I think. In that scenario the FX 6300 would be better.

EDIT: Damn, I was close. ;)

That is better, the FX4350 will be faster in single threaded games and the FX6300 in multithreaded which is the way to go for new games and future releases.

Just curious, would OCing the 6300 to the same clock speed help it to have the same single threaded performance? Or is there something different about the architecture between the two.

And chowder I'd recommend the 6300, it will run older and new games just fine.

No need, it's the same chip as the 6300 just clocked a little higher.

The PSU is a little ominous.

What's your budget and currency? We may possibly be able to help you pick out a better rig.

PC and monitor for £500 pounds.

That was from fresh tech solutions two identical pcs apart from the CPU but I wasn't sure which one to go for.

I haven't build my own but I know how to after fixing my laptop a few times so I think I could do it but I would prefer pre built.

Or just suggest rigs and I will find a site that builds it for you.

Slightly over budget. You could remove something like the optical drive and it would be under budget. BTW do you have a copy of windows? Or do you have 'alternate methods' to acquire one?

Ah, well putting a PC together is like lego for adults honestly. Not difficult, you'll have fun and learn a lot. Not to mention you get better parts for cheaper!

Thank you so much I haven't been able to decide so thanks for that also what a bout cooling and thermal paste.

Will that hdd be big enough I have 53 games on steam and I'm looking to buy more.

Wouldn't a WD blue 1tb be better?

The price from fresh tech for the above I first said is £323 with windows and the monitor is £99 with speakers would that be better?

As I said, the PSU seems ominous. It might be a no-name brand and unreliable and the PSU is something you don't want to cheap out on; if it blows, it can take everything else out with it. Also the PC doesn't come with windows but you could purchase that separately.

As for the monitor it's essentially the same as the one I linked but costs £10 more.

All in all it's up to you.

That one comes with an OS so it's good on that front. Ever so slightly faster CPU. The GPU has 1gb less VRAM but if you're looking to upgrade that soon it might not matter. It still has that same PSU that I personally wouldn't risk going with. No-name brand is a no-go for me.
