FX6300 vs. i3 4130

I'm upgrading my CPU, Motherboard, and graphics card. I'm pretty set on the 750 ti. However, I'm pretty torn on the processor. I don't know which would be better, the i3 4130 or the FX6300. Which one will perform better, both now and later?

Would it be worth it to pay the extra 30 dollars and get the 8320?

Also, whichever processor you recommend, I'd love if you could recommend a cheap motherboard to go with it, around 70 dollars or so (Micro ATX.)

    FX-8320 if you can afford it.

    FX-6300 beats 4130 when the FX-6300 is overclocked but 4130 wins at stock speeds.

    As for MATX mobo's on the AMD side you can't get an MATX board unless it's the 760G chipset

    can run an FX-8320 I believe at stock speed no trouble!
