What do you plan on doing with it, and what do you expect out of it? The 8320 is much more capable, but you could also put the money towards another upgrade that may do you better.

Here's a build, a bit over budget, with the FX-8320 and a mobo: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/llFO You'll be able to overclock on that mobo, too.

You'll want the 6300 then, because I believe that your mobo won't support above an 8000 series

FX 6300 is your only choice here. That motherboard doesn't support FX 8320/8350. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but that is not a very good board at all.

It really isn't, unfortunately. But with your budget you could buy a better one, so you could upgrade your processor in the future.
