Need help on choosing the right pair (CPU and GPU)

So I am stuck picking between an FX-6300 w/ an R9 280x or an FX-8350 w/ an R9 270x. Can someone please help me out?

Note: This is all going onto a Asus M5A97 LE R2.0 with 8 GB ram at 1600Mhz

  1. Best answer
    get the 6300, a nice mobo/cpu cooler to overclock, and an R9 280.
  2. I agree go with the 6300 it has plenty of compute performance for gaming and other cpu intensive task, and you will really appreciate the 280 more than the 270.
