    Yes but if you have not bought that processor then spend the extra 17 bucks on the FX 6300 the difference will be worth it.
    Also buy a better quality power supply the CX series are really not what to buy.

    Thanks for the reply, yet where i live the difference in price between the 4300 and 6300 is almost 50 bucks, so is that worth it?
  3. It would be to me but if the price difference puts it out of your budget then keep what you have.

    What you can do is leave out the heatsink, get it later, and buy an FX-6300 and use the heatsink and fan it comes with until you can get yourself a Hyper 212 EVO.

    I have the FX-6300 and hyper 212 in my system but I don't have a better or worst computer to compare it too so I couldn't tell you how well it runs but I think it's a good processor. I've had it for 2 years. I overclocked it to 4.42 Ghz with the Hyper 212, trying to keep temperatures under load under 65°C, testing on Prime95. I just got myself an FX-8300 because it was on sale on newegg but to be honest, I don't think it will be any improvement but I also did it because I want to build a new system for my little brother to game with me :)

    Here, I built the base of a good budget system, without the graphics card though. Everything else is your preference, but most should be spent on the CPU.

    Try to get most parts on Amazon or Newegg. The HDD and motherboard are on Amazon for about the prices I set on the list.
