If I were to choose either the fx 6300 for gaming or the fx 8320, which would be better on a price performance ratio.

More about : 6300 8320

depends on what game/GPU you use... higher GPU need more CPU power. 8320 for sure

FX6300 is basically a 6 core version of the 8320. It has the same clock and turbo speed. So unless you have a game that you know will use all 8 cores (which would be rare) I don't see much point in going 8320 for gaming. If you stream, then I might want the extra cores.


this far cry 3 benchmark seems to show clock speed being more important than the extra cores because the fx-6300 (3.5G 6 core) beats the fx-8300 (3.3G 8 core). One might conclude that the 8320 would be right around that same 58fps mark.

7870 is excellent for Far Cry. That's about $210-$240 depending on sales. If money is tight, then definitely drop to the 6300 to pay for the slightly better graphics card. 7870 is the best without spending well over $300.

Under 200$ the hd 7850 is the best.

I run a 7850, so normally I agree, but in this case there is a 33% performance increase going to the 7870. Well worth the cost difference. The next 33% performance above the 7870 costs $250! (GTX 680/7970) :)

I suggest the 7870 + 6300 over a 7850 and a 8320. You will much more gaming gain out of the 6300/7870 then the 7850/8320.

I thin you're right. I think the performance is good for the price.

if your game prefers nvidia i got the gtx 650 ti boost and it worked well with all my games with no lag at all and a minimun with the fx-6300 of 50 fps unless theres server lag.
