Already ordered a 760k, but i'm not sure if mistakes were made. I have a $270 budget for the gpu and was probably going to get either a gigabyte or msi gtx 760, but seeing some articles online made me skeptical about my decision. I really would like to know if it would be worth it to resell it or wait another month to return my motherboard and cpu to get the 6300 or just stick with what I have. Links to some graphs comparing the two CPUs in games that aren't just GPU intensive would be great and EXTREMELY helpful.

What MoBo?

MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 Micro ATX FM2, not good enough to overclock.

Also not compatible with a 6300.

I said in the description I would return the MoBo as well, probably end up getting the G43 or G46

Yeah, you can go with the 6300 build and have a nice computer that will run most games well, or the Athlon and have a massive bottleneck and a generally sucky computer.

That is the definition of a bottleneck, dude.
