Will the two extra cores on the FX8320 benefit me over the FX6300 in games?

Gaming wise (not rendering and editing). Will the to extra cores make a difference? (The gpu will be an GTX760)

Thanks

More about extra cores fx8320 benefit fx6300 games
  1. In a few games, namely Crysis 3 and Battlefield 4 - yes. For the huge majority of games there will be little to no difference.

    Some upcoming games claim to utilise more cores, but it's speculation at the moment.

    What would be the difference in frame rate on those games?

    Quoted from (8530rocks)
    "Go with the 8320, get 8 cores for less money and overclock later. If you're not going to overclock, get the 6350, it will be almost the same performance as the 8350 in about 90% of games right now..."

    Assume the 6300 is slightly above the 4170:


    The 6300 would be slightly below the 6350:


    Bear in mind your FPS would be lower with a 760.

    had read that already. I guess I'll take 6300 and overclock it. Thanks

    these benchmarks don't show min fps, so i personally think they are unreliable

    I'm pretty sure they're averages. They take into account the minimum FPS.
