Could compromise with a 8320. Otherwise the i5 would be better. It should last around 4 years, but you can't really estimate that due to changing tech. in games.

I prefer the i5s over the fx 6300 any day. The i5s have more power per core so they tend to stay useful for longer (i5s from 3 years ago still play modern games with no problems). FPS wise, they would probably be the same or similar for games that are gpu intensive. Games that are more CPU oriented will perform better on the i5 since there are very few games that take advantage of the fx-6300's 6 cores (most use at max 4 cores).

My vote goes to the i5 + r9 280x
