I'm building a budget gaming PC for a friend as was wondering which combo would be better?
An Athlon II x4 760k with a Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 Dual-X OC (2GB 1.0GHz)
An FX-6300 with a ASUS Radeon HD 7790 DirectCU II OC (2GB 1.07GHz)
2nd option is better. It's better to buy FX6300 than the ageing X4 760K. Buy the GPU as per your budget.
