FX 6350 + R9 280x / I5 4570 + GTX 760 / FX 8350 + R9 280

Hello, I'm building a budget (700 euros) PC, from the local parts mostly, and I was hoping you could help to chose a more future-prof PC from the following options:

FX 6350 + R9 280x / I5 4570 + GTX 760 / FX 8350 + R9 280

Please also state the reason for your choice.

    Thank you for your answer once more. But as far as i know, there is a huge debate now about FX 8350 vs I5 4570, indeed I5 is more supperior in a single core performance, however is future games would be optomised for more cores - FX 8350 might be an advantage, plus it will be good for multitasking - gaming + streaming, is it not?

    All in all 780 Euros is quit much over my budget, for sure i would have wanted to get the high end in every aspect, but I have a trade off between the CPU and the GPU :(
    And moreover, I planed to insert 120gb SSD as a main drive, and 500 HDD for all other use.
  3. ''FX 8350 might be an advantage, plus it will be good for multitasking - gaming + streaming, is it not?''
    YES! its true
    more cores mean more tasks
    but not with the fx 6350

    Ok, I'll stick to 8350 in such a case. But could you advice, will 2.0 PCIE slot lower the performance of R9 280x by much?

    NOT REALLY...may be 1% to 3% and maybe nothing at all
