  1. I would spend a little more on the FX 6300, or I would get the i3.

    DEPENDING on the rest off your pc and what games your wanting to play.
  2. the i3 is slightly faster in games and the fx is slightly faster in regular use.
  3. power consumption is the main downside of the AMD cpus.. otherwise great value for money ...

  4. If you look at this comparison: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/700?vs=102
    You can see the AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE comes pretty close to the FX-4300, and is $50 cheaper! With that amount of savings you could bump up your graphics card!
  5. anandtech isnt measuring gaming benchmarks..... i3 is better in that sense, but thats cause its superior single core
