    what about this one ?
  6. The 6350 does not have 10% increased performance, it has 10% increased clock rate. They are different. That one looks great.
  7. thank you everybody
  8. Good luck! For gaming at 720p this combo (FX-6300/FX-6350 & R9 270/ R9 270x) will let you play most of the latest games at high settings.
