Hi guys, I am planning to buy a simple gaming desktop but with tight budget so I have two options and both of them have about the same prices. So could you help me please?

1st option: CPU is AMD FX 6300 with graphics card Asus HD7770
2nd option: CPU is i3-4130 with graphics card Inno3D GTX 650Ti

As you see, the prices are about the same.

Which is better? Thanks. :)

i3 4130 and GTX 650 ti

because
i3 4130 has 50% higher score in single core tests than FX 6300
GTX 650ti is 26% faster than hd 7770 on average .

The Second Option is your best bet. PC Part Picker is a great place to try and build a budget PC with semi updated prices and part lists. I hope this helps!

Though this combo is better than either of those two for the same cost as the i3 combo you listed.

Hi, okay I had read another thread that telling that FX 6300 will be able to run smoothly future games because it will require more cores and bigger ghz on each core, and they say that a dual core even with 4 multi threading feature will not be able to handle future games.

So what do you think? Will the FX-6300 be able to handle enough GTX 650 Ti 1gb even though that it is not with the same brand?
What I mean is, a cpu with which is AMD should be able to partner with a graphics card that is an AMD radeon too. Anymore guides please? thanks

No way to tell...
Multi-core threading is inevitable but know one can tell you if a 6300 will still be viable when it developers finally start threading. But yes, the 6300 prepares you more for the inevitable, it's just a matter of when it will happen.

Would there be a bottlenecking on FX6300 with GTX650ti?
