amd fx 6300, amd fx 8320 or amd fx 8350?

I am going to stream and be able to play every game I want to play, so will the fx 6300 bottleneck my r9 280x? and I will it be worth it to buy the 8350 for streaming, and if so, how good will it be able tostream at 720p 60 fps? Will I notice a significant difference when I am streaming between the fx 6300 and the 8350? How much more fps will i get in games if I deside to buy the 8350?

  1. AMD FX CPUs are inferior to Intel CPUs for gaming. A Core i5 would be ideal, or a Core i3 6100 on a budget. It's probably best to use an nVidia GPU, too, so you can use Shadowplay.
  2. If you don't already have a motherboard then get an i3 6100 if you cant afford the i5.

    If you already have the amd motherboard then you would need an 8320 to not bottleneck a 280x.

    FYI an 8320 is an underclocked 8350.
    So 8320 with a good motherboard and good PSU is no different then an 8350.

    i would go with a 6600 with a gtx 960 the AM3+ socket is done with its reallly not worth it. Skylake has many newe features and is stilll brand new.
  4. Even my 8350 OC'd to 5.2GHz has trouble with gaming. And I have two R9 280X's OC'd to 1100MHz in Crossfire, I still have trouble turning up settings in many games. I recommend either the i3 6320 or the i5 6500, depending on budget of course. A Z170 board will give you maximum room for upgrades, but is not completely necessary. You can get away with a H170 or even a H110 board if you don't intend to Crossfire or SLI.

    I do not recommend AMD R9 200 series cards anymore, and I do not recommend AMD FX processors anymore either. They had their time, now we're past that. In fact I'm going Intel, myself, in a few weeks
  5. I'm happy with how well my HD7850 has aged, but it's still being sold (the exact same card) 4.5 years later as the R9 370. It was rebadged and resold 3 times as a "new" card.

    The 280X is equally old - a late 2011 design, which has been rebadged and resold several times. It's not a slow card, but it's power hungry and lacking in features compared to AMD and nVidia's newer cards. The R9 380 and 285 are both newer revisions of the GCN architecture which will support more DX12 features and have lower power consumption, and any nV 9xx GPU would also be a good choice. nVidia's Shadowplay feature is practically a no-brainer for people who want to stream.
  6. Of the two if sticking with AMD go the 8350. I'd suggest going to Intel also or waiting to see how the upcoming AMD Zen CPUs come out. I've got a nice 8370 rig (in sig) that just sits, no one wants to use it. I primarily fire it up to help people here with AMD system problems

    How about this build? Will it be enough for streaming with my r9 280x?
  8. It will, but why buy the i5 4xxx when the i5 6xxx is available (faster, lower power consumption) for about the same price?
  9. That build is not very good.

    First off, as already mentioned, it is pointless to save 10% or less getting old technology. The difference between skylake (new) and haswell (old) is much bigger then the last few generation changes.
    Secondly, you should get 2x4gb over 1x8gb. Real world it is about 10% performance difference
    Third, the aftermarket cooler is really not necessary for non-overclockable CPU
    Forth, that EVGA power supply is not a very quality unit. Best bang for buck is seasonic S12ii 520 (otherwise look for XFX psu's on special)

    why would you use an h110 board ?
  13. To save money so he can get a higher CPU

    that cpu is negligible.
  15. For gaming, isn't clock speed more important than core count, as long as you have at least a dual core?
  16. It depends on the CPU and you can't compare clock speeds between AMD and Intel as far as performance i.e. the AMD 9590 is 'native' or sold at 4.7 and is 8core, yet it gets soundly beat at anything by a stock 4770K with a base of 3.5 (3.9 turbo) and is 4 core (+ 4 if Hyper threading used)

    But I want to be able to stream, so is the dual core i3 going to be enough for streaming like dayz and h1z1 ?
