  1. My recommendation :

    Downgrade to FX-6300, you can overclock a 6300 to match 6350
    Switch to dial channel memory ie 2 ram sticks of 4gb rather than 1 stick of 8gb.

    +1 to the CPU recommendation. However, you will need a larger PSU for overclocking much beyond 6350 level.

    I recommend sticking with 1 stick of RAM, since your mobo only has 2 DIMM slots. In the next year or so, 16gb will be the recommended amount of memory for a gaming system. If you go with 2x4 now, you'll have to toss that RAM in order to upgrade to 16gb.

    The benefits of dual channel in games isn't particularly big, so you're not losing that much now.

    I live next to microcenter so there is a pickup only deal where i can get 6350 with the free mobo. There is no 6300 wth mobo dealD: As for the ram, I chose one dimm because of the minimal performance cut and upgradability

  5. I didn't notice that your motherboard has only two slot.

    Other than that everything seems compadible.
