Which one is better performance/gaming wise? Should I go the budget friendly way (AMD FX 6300) or dish out the extra $100 and get the i5?

The 6300 seems to have better price to performance ratio but the i5 also seems to outperform the 6300 in every aspect.

go for the i5, its worth the extra money.

although if you are building new, i would recommend the 4670k. dont build on a dead socket.

And if you have an extra 40 dollars get a nice big heatsink. Haswells get hot.

I believe LGA1150 is also dead as Broadwell is rumoured to use a different socket. There's some talk of moving the VRMs back onto the mobo as they caused the Haswell to get hotter. Still, either 3570k or 4670k are way better than 6300. 4670k has slightly more performance per clock cycle, but generally less overclockable than 3570k.

ive heard nothing of broadwell moving to a new socket... that goes against intel tick tock.

the 3570 uses an 1155 pin socket, which is no longer getting new cpu's.

the 4670 is on the 1150 pin socket, which is "supposed" to get one more generation of new cpus before intel moves to yet another socket.

Get an FX 8320, and overclock it to 4.0 ghz and change it to fx 8350 in old or single threaded games yeah i5 4670k>fx 8350 currently and for moderately threaded games i5 4670=fx 8350, and in the near future fx 8350> i5 4670k, let's review these benchmarks here
http://www.techspot.com/review/591-medal-of-honor-warfi... (MOH warfighter fx 8350 performs as well as i7-3960x)
http://www.techspot.com/review/601-black-ops-2-performa... (call of duty black ops 2 fx 8350 performs as well as i7-3960x)
http://www.pcgameshardware.de/Crysis-3-PC-235317/Tests/... (crysis 3- fx 8350 better than i7 3770k and just below i7-3950x)

http://www.hardwarepal.com/battlefield-4-benchmark-mp-c... ( battlefield4 full HD the same scenario)
http://www.techspot.com/review/645-tomb-raider-performa... (Tomb raider 2013)
a lot of more incidents which shows these CPUs enjoy actually the same performance, in one game one beats the other, in the other game there is another scenario, but something is for sure, in crysis 3 for example i5-3570k uses 80% percent of it resources AMD fx 8350 just uses 60% in COD ghost i5 4670k uses 44% of its resources fx 8350 only uses 25%
in the future fx 8350> i5 4670k, wanna bet!? just look at these links
* where is the i5 in UBISOFT's system requirements!? http://www.game-debate.com/games/index.php?g_id=4546&ga... Ubisoft has confrimed that this game is heavily threaded, and has promised i5 owners can hit high sttings!! NO ULTRA SETTINGS
* When Capcom says its new engine takes full advantage of i7, which is good news for fx owners, Capcom really means it http://www.gamasutra.com/view/feature/132533/sponsored_...
* Epic says the more cores the better http://www.shacknews.com/article/70348/epic-talks-unrea...
