AMD A10 7850k vs AMD FX6300 vs AMD FX8320

My build is almost complete. I only have to get the CPU and motherboard yet, however I am facing a bit of a dilemma.

I can get the AMD A10 7850k APU that has the built in graphics, comes with a relatively cheap (temporary) motherboard, and comes with battlefield 4 for free (Meh...) for $130.

I can get the AMD FX6300 that comes with a cheap (temporary) motherboard for $120.

Or, I can get the AMD FX8320 for $99.

Here is the wrench in the situation.

Whatever I choose will be running a R9 270x. Would the integrated graphics in the 7850k increase my performance at all? Does it being quad core rather than hexa core hold it back?

I've heard the FX6300 actually performs close to, if not better than the FX8320 when overclocked. I know I the FX8320 for $99 is a great price, but then i have to shell out more for a motherboard that can handle it's 125w power consumption. I really have to stay around the $750 dollar range due to just buying a new car this month.

Just wanting some opinions on what would likely be my best option.

This is my build if it helps at all. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2UhTt

EDIT: forgot to mention. With the 7850k, I will crossfire it with an r7 250 I have laying around.

  1. No increase from the integrated Graphics with that card. As a CPU the APU is behind the FX line in CPU performance (no L3 cache). A single 270X will beat the APU + R7 250 in performance.
    I would go with the FX8320 and good overclocking board. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-m5a99xevor20
  2. go with the FX-8320 since it is stronger than both processors

  4. Keep in mind, New A10 7850k is support fast DDR3 2133 speed, Motherboard FM2+ support up to 64GB and PCI Express 3.0 which it is double bandwidth over aging AM3+'s PCI Express 2 and most motherboard AM3+ support up to 32GB. AM3+ is out of date for sure. Yeah, Many people keeping say AMD FX is fast CPU, I would choice New AMD APU over old AMD. So, Your decision whatever you think the best! Good luck
  5. 7850 2400 ram

    There is virtually no difference between pcie 3.0 and 2.0 right now.

    The fx 6300 is 10% faster than the A10 7850k.

    The 8320 is the best choice.
  7. I went with the 8320 and 270x. Been extremely happy with its performance. Don't forget that the 8320 overclocks very nicely with an appropriate mobo.
