8320, although if you want 6300 it's basically the same thing but 6 cores as opposed to 8. No use in gaming extra cores.

Rest is standard in the PC industry. The monopoly that Nvidia and AMD has left us builders with little choice. 770 or the 280x. Your choice. More like, no choice.

Big sale on FX-8320 + motherboard, I would not opt for Intel considering this sale.
