FX-6300 vs Phenom II X4 965 Black

FX-6300 vs Phenom II X4 965 Black. Which one of these is better? I know that for the FX series Not all of the cores are being used, There only supporting cores. I have two ways of going on this. Go with the Phenom II X4 965 black and get a MSI radeon twin Frozr OC, or go with fx6300 and get a XFX 7850 1GB

  1. Bumpp. Any suggestions?
  2. What card is the MSI?
    In the past I would have said go with the Phenom II X4 965BE. But recent reviews seem to indicate the FX-6300 is slightly superior. Tom's ranks them higher than the Phenom too. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-cpu-review-overclock,3106-5.html
    Here is a comparison of the two: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/699?vs=102

    (holy cow! AnandTech did a web upgrade)
  3. I think it's time to move on from the Phenoms. They are great chip but there really are CPUs out there that are just as good if not better for a similar price. Get the 6300.
  4. I would say get the 965 if you willing to upgrade when steamroller comes out as the new 6x00 will likely be significantly faster than the 6300

    Just get a regular 7850 2gb and OC that baby
