Well i prefer i3 4130 to fx6300 due to better single threaded performance. You can always get the refreshed i3-4150 for the same money, with higher clocks but that would need a bios update which can be difficult with a cpu not directly supported by the mobo... I tried keeping it below 600$ but at that case at least 1 component would be 1 step down in performance(40 extra bucks totally worth it). So that is what i woud buy :

The r9 270 runs battlefield 4(high preset) on fhd and manages to sustain 60 fps almost constantly. So on the resolution you want, almost everything will run smoothly (even on ultra). Im concentrating on battlefield because dayz is less demanding...

The core i3 is pretty capable and you wont experience any bottlenecks with that gpu... You can always go for the fx6300 but paying for another cooling solution than the stock to overclock, and buying a decent am3+ mobo will cost you more. But if gaming is you sole concern go with the 6300, many games will take advantage of the 6 cores... and change the build like that(you can overclock later and skip the cooler now):

But you should know toms puts 6300 a tier lower than the i3 4130.

thank you a lot. your a huge help. looks like intel it is, cause most games only use 4 anyway. I can always upgrade in the future if it changes. again, thanks
