Just like the title states... I am going to be putting together my first low-budget gaming rig and was wondering which one would be better. If you think I should wait and save up some more money to buy a better processor, then that could be an option as well(though I rather not spend more $$ on a CPU). I plan on pairing one of the CPUs above with an EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB just to give you an idea of what I'm going to be working with. If you think I should get a different GPU, feel free to mention that as well! Thanks in advance for your time, I appreciate any advice/help you have to offer :)

Does that one perform better than the ones I listed or is it just better for the price?

i would go the fx 6300 over the i3 as they are similar in performance and the fx has 6 cores over the dual core with HT, and the am3+ socket lives for one more generation, and then id still get the 6300 over the 965 as piledriver (6300) beats the phenom II (965) overall and u get 2 more cores with the fx over the x4 965. If u were asking about the 6100 against the i3/965 it'd be a different story
