I have limited budget
Can get either fx 6300 with radeon HD 6670 or an i5 4440 with no external graphics
Which should be better
I will get some cash after 1 year
Maybe 200 dollars I can buy a solid GPU with that if I get an i5 now

I can stretch max upto HD 7750 now if I get fx 6300

The i5 4440+anything over a HD 7750 is better than the fx-6300+7750.

Get an Athlon x4 750k or 760k and a more worthwhile video card. If not, you could get an A10 for cheaper that would equal the HD6670's graphics power. The i5 is way better than the FX6300, but the i5's igpu would not be very good for gaming.

The i5+R9 270 ($200 card) will kick the FX in every way. If you live near one look to microcenter.

The i5 4440 is a good choice of CPU, but at the price you can get the i5 4570 for the same price. It's better in performance.

I would rather get the i5 4570 over the FX 8320, and then save up about $300 and get a upper mid-end graphics card.

Heres the difference between the 4440 and the 4570:

The poster cannot afford a 4440 AND an external card. The integrated hd4600 graphics on the i5 are good enough for basic gaming, so I would recommend going that way and upgrading the graphics later.

I agree with tea on getting the I5 now and a graphics card later.

if im correct
i think future games would support 6 or 8 core
i5 doesnt have 6 cores
FX 8320 has 8 core but not powerfull than intel
will i5 still be enough for 3-4 years

No software house will bother to make a game that wont run well on an i5 because the customer market would be too small.
You can count on four years with any 4 series i5 processor.
Please note that console 8 core cpu's only run at half the speed of pc versions,
apart from steam boxes which are actually just pc's anyway.

same story when phenom2 x6 was being justified.

the number of cores doesn't matter if the architecture behind is failing.

the hd4600 is more than good enough to game with on 720p on low settings, might even be able to crank some detail settings up, before I got my gpu I gamed on my Intel 4000 graphics, and I could play anything I wanted on 720p low settings. I'd just go that route. Because the fx8320 wouldn't be a good choice for you, you HAVE to get a GPU with an FX processor, they don't have ANY integrated graphics like the intels do.

The gpu passmark for hd4600 is 652 marks, which is actually higher than my old hd3850 graphics card. And that games fine at low rez.

yeah, I think people really underestimate the hd4600, they even ragged on the hd4000, while yes the games will look bad and worse than xbox 360 graphics, it's not like it's the end of the world and the games won't play at all. On the hd4000, I got roughly 30fps on low settings on metro 2033, it was smooth to me and never choppy. Expect an xbox 360 (roughly) experience. It's not THAT bad.

or you could go Athlon x4 750k+dedicated gpu like r7 260x, but then you're getting a worse cpu than the i5

Go For The Intel I5
It Also Have Integrated GPU - 4th Gen I5's Are Having Intel HD 4440 Which Are Great. They Can Also Be Good For Now And Later You Can Just Buy A Nice GPU Maybe A GTX 760 Or 770.
And Intel i5 Is Way Better Than 6300
