hey there, i am trying to choose from the fx 8350 Vishera cpu or the A10 6800k Richland . this build is going to be mainly used for gaming, i am going to be picking up ASUS GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST 2GB or something around that price range. a good friend of mine tell me to go with the a10 to save some money and you don't really need the 8 core fx cpu, but for only an extra 60$ or so i feel like its worth it. anyway need some help, thank you

theres a link below for all my parts. please let me know if you can see it, if not ill take the time to type out everything, thanks again for any suggestion

Even the FX 6300 would be superior to the A10. The GTX 650ti boost is good for it's price, but I recommend the HD 7850 for $110.

The A10 has very powerful integrated graphics and will game on 720p all by itself when set up properly. 1080p is a bit out of it's reach though. I can't recommend ANY A series apu if you're planning on using a discrete video card. There are many better options like the Athlon x4 760k for example for $89 or FX 4300 for $99.

The FX 6300 is usually $119 and is an exceptional value.
The FX 8320 is usually $159 and is also a great value. I actually recommend it over the more expensive FX 8350. They are the same chip, the 8350 is just clocked higher.

thanks for your help, also what mobo would you recommend i use with the fx8320? i would guess its a preference when it comes to the maker, like asus, gigabyte, msi or asrock. but what would you recommend? thanks for your knowledge :)

I just built this computer with a Fx 6300 black edition which was 110 dollars and is extremely fast and a MSI 760-p23FX which was 55 dollars and works with the 8320.

I recommend a 970 series if you're on a tight budget because you can overclock. A 990FX series motherboard will be even better if you can afford it.
