Go with fx 6300 as it is way faster than future fx 6300 will really come in using in gaming due to good multithreated performance.fx 6300 is best under that range + you can upgrade to stream roller cpu in future while intel's lga is end

I agree, go with the FX

IMO since the new game console will use amd apu with those "module core", i think the game that being ported from it will benefit this "module core"........

anyways that just a feeling.... :D

Honestly, both are very good! I don't think you'll be unhappy with either. The INtel has faster cores, but the AMD has 6 cores. The end result is that single/dual threaded tasks favor the intel and multi-threaded tasks favor the AMD.

I am a big i3-2xxx fan, but the FX-6300 is probably a better processor for gaming... and definitely better for heavily multi-threaded applications.
