My friend is buying a new CPU. He wants to spend around £150 - £200 on it and it has to be AMD so he doesn't have to buy a new mobo. It will be used for playing the latest games preferably on max . (Crysis 3 ect) Which should he get?

Mobo - MSI 760GM-P21 (FX) Micro ATX AM3+ Motherboard

Also, what cooler should he get for overclocking? (Around £40)

the fx 8350 is £150 and it's the best cpu from amd, that being said, the 6300 is still great too
the hyper 212 evo is what most buy for air coolers it's around £30

Yeah get the 212 EVO but I wouldn't want to OC on that board

You can get the FX6300 or the FX8350, the 8350 will do better but at a cost
