Next-gen processor and motherboard question

Hello all. I am planning on getting a new processor for the next generation of gaming, at the very least an AMD FX6300 Black Edition hex-core CPU. My current CPU is an AMD A6 5400K and my GPU is an AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB. I would like to know if there are better processors for around £120 and if a hex-core is good enough to run next-gen AAA titles such as AC4 and BF4 on maximum graphics. I would prefer to stay with an AMD processor but I am willing to buy an Intel if necessary. I am aware that I will need to buy a new motherboard as well so if there are any suggestions for a good Socket AM3+ motherboard that would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
