More about 8350 gaming phenom
  1. For gaming, get the FX 6300
  2. how about the fx-4170, it benchmarks better in games than the 6300.
  3. It seems better in FC3....
  4. The 4170 is terrible, and first generation Bulldozer(X1XX) should not be purchased if your goal is gaming.

    6300 is actually decent. I stick with intel myself, but from what I've seen, the 6300 lies between an i3 and an i5.
  5. With both fully overclocked, the 8350 is likely only marginally better in poorly threaded games (most games, except the very newest). But it is going to be much more future proof - as mentioned in the latest "best CPU for gaming" games are getting more multithreaded, so for say, Battlefield 4, Elder Scrolls VII, etc, etc you are probably going to be much better off with the 8350.
  6. Id use an FX 6300 rather than the 4170 .

    Its easy to hit 4170 clock speeds and get better performance
  7. Thanks for all the info guys, so my best bet would be to go with either the 6300 or 8350 yeah?

    Among AMD processors, yes, those are the two good ones. Also, I believe that the 8320 is a better buy than the 8350, seeing as you can OC it to 8350 levels while saving a few bucks.
  9. i Went with the 6300 for gaming. However the 8320 is 40bucks more so its up to you.

    I personally bought batman arkham city with that 40bucks haha :D
