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

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.

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
