OC Fx6300 or buy an FX8320?

If I oc I'd need to buy a brand new mobo and cpu cooler and possibly a new case so it will pretty much cost as much as a 8320.

Would it be better to just go ahead and upgrade the cpu then OC in a year or two when need be?

Rig is purely for gaming experiencing bottleneck with an oc'ed 280x on some games.
