    I agree. CPUs tend to bottleneck systems less now then in the past. In addition, more expensive CPUs do not up single thread/core performance as significantly as you might hope - the emphasis is on adding more cores, and having a several core CPU is not yet as relevant to gaming as it may be a few years down the line.
  3. Get the 6300 and with the money you save you should try to get a 760 instead
  4. As everyone else says the 6300 is the way to go. There shouldn't be any bottlenecks in most games.
