Hi everyone!

I want to build a PC to be used by all the family, to see mails, videos, compile programs (only me), play games like WoW, LoL, BF4, and RoR, if possible, all at medium-high settings and at 1080p.
I've got a budget of 500-600 €, no more. These are the tow configurations, which is better and what can I improve? Thanks!

It sounds nice, because the fx 6300 is 30 € cheaper than the 8320, but is fast enough?

In gaming the fx 6300 will be only a few fps worse than the fx 8320 but a better gpu will produce much more fps

obviously choose the AMD setup. It will be far more powerful than the intel setup. Also, if you wish to use your PC for atleast 2 yrs without any upgrade, I would suggest you to go with FX 8320. FX 6300 is good no doubt, but it wont be able to run games that are going to be released in late 14 or early 15 at true hd setup. (I m assuming you would like to play those games in your machine)

And what do you think about the graphics card? Will it support them? Or I should get the 650 ti? Thanks!

Its a little difficult to forecast about GPU. But I guess you will be able to use this G-card to play games at medium detail for next 2 yrs. High details may reduce the FPS significantly though
