FX-8320 or FX-6300 or i3-4330

I know these questions probably get asked a lot but I am really confused right now. I am brand new to building PCs and wanting to build a gaming pc which will be able to run, BF4, Planetside2 and DayZ etc.

The GPU I am going to get is the R9 270X

Which would be the better CPU overall? I want to be able to run the games without any issues.

Thanks.

  1. Best answer
    The 8320 is best out of all of those.
  2. A 6300 would pair well with a 270x, however, the 8320 has the best performance of the three, and would likely last you longer.
  3. I have been told amd cpu's perfrom poorly on planetside 2?
  4. Quite possible. Certain games tend to favor AMD or Intel, and I've heard that Planetside 2 is more CPU intensive than most games. An overclocked 8320 would most likely do alright, but not as good as say an overclocked i5-4670k or an i7-4770k.

    Even if it doesn't perform as good as some intel cpu's out there do you think it still would perform to a good standard?
  6. Easily.
  7. I've heard that after some patches they perform completely fine, though they still lack a little single-threaded performance compared to the intels for some games. It will be perfectly playable - it was even playable on my old bulldozer FX 6200 before the patches.
  8. Great, thank you for your quick answers I really appreciate it.
