Hello I am going to be building a budget PC and I am narrowing it down to a i3 4130 or a FX 6300. Will be playing bf4 and newer gen games. And I will also be running them with a 650ti. Which is better for price and performance?

Definitely FX-6300. In well threaded games it should be as strong as a weaker i5, whereas the 4130 will always just be an i3 (Not terrible though). It's a no-brainer in my book.

IF BF4 is the game that you really want to play go with AMD CPU and an AMD card. BF4 is optimized for AMD and has support for the mantle API. I don't understand your reasoning on the price to performance ratio with the 650ti. According to the benchmarks that I have seen online using BF4 the 650ti only performed 1fps better than the R7-260 while the 260 is $15 to $20 cheaper than it's counterpart.
If cheap is what you are looking for you might want to look at AMDs A10-7850k APU it has a built in R7 series GPU that outperforms either of these discrete cards by about 5-6fps in BF4 for about $60 less. Also when you have more funds available you can run a R7-250 or 240 in dual graphics with the on-board graphics for a cheap performance boost. Just something to consider :) 
As my name implies I am extremely new to this, but I have spent the bulk of my effort learning about AMD parts because I feel like overall they offer the pest price to performance. Hopefully this helps put a bit though.

Well actually I already have a 650ti from my previous build. So I already have a GPU. No need to get another card. But thanks.
