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!

buy fx 8320: it´s very capable processor for modern gaming since new games tend to utilize more cores...
this motherboard is very good for the price: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-motherboard-ga970...
you will also need quality aftermarket heatsink in order to overclock your processor
scythe mugen 4 would be great choice ...
