  1. you linked the fx 6300.. i would take the 6300
  2. Best answer
    Go with the Phenom since it is quite cheaper and is better. Try and get a decent cooler. FX are good but they have really high temps from my experience

    And what experience would that be then?
  4. Ive just read countless people say that the phenom is outperforms even the fx 8120, I would suspect that it would out perform 6300 aswell. Personally I have a FX 8120, just because the phenom was not an option for me.

  6. Thanks everybody, I ended up going with the x4 because it seems to perform well, and so i would have some more money to put into the rest of the build. All my parts should be here in a day or two and im super pumped, thanks i really appreciate all of your help
