i will be buying a new pc and had a problem, i am on a strict budget and was thinking of buying amd fx 8320 and gtx 660 2gb gpu,4 x 2gb ram, gigabyte 970 mobo. however, i wanted to know if i should buy the amd fx 6300(cheaper) processor and invest in a better graphics card.
this pc will be for gaming purposes and not a work bench.
thanks a lot guys

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.

Get the 6300 and with the money you save you should try to get a 760 instead

As everyone else says the 6300 is the way to go. There shouldn't be any bottlenecks in most games.
