    Thanks for the reply it's my first time so I'm a tat confused. Is the 8320 better than the i3?
  4. The 8320 is on paper, better than the i3. However, it's ironic, cause the i3's got the significantly better GTX 770, while the FX's got weaker GTX 760.
  5. Anyone else can recommend any other alternative builds? :)
