Hello,

I would like to upgrade my CPU (AM3) but i'm kinda struggling in finding my best option.

My current build :

M5A78L-M/USB3
Phenom II X4 945 (95W)
Hyper TX3 EVO (CPU Cooler)
650W Berlin Thermaltake PSU
GV-N760OC-2GD
8GB 1666Mhz Ram
Corsair 300R W/ 5 case fans

Which one would you take the FX 6300 or the FX8320

Thanks!

P.S. I kinda wanna try OCing, Since I have good cooling already, Think the only problem is my Mobo then.
