I made a similar decision last week. I was stuck between the 6300 and 8320. I decided to go with an 8350 because it provides the best performance AMD is currently offering. If you plan to use this CPU after Steamroller is released, you may as well get the 8320. It can provide similar performance to the 8350 and has a slightly better chance of being more effective in a year or two.

If you are thinking of buying a CUP for gaming, then try buying AMD FX 8350 or the Intel 3570k or if you have got more money the 3770k. Other than that, if you ocassionally do gaming, then multitasking you should be better of the FX 6300.

AMD cups are far better if you will be overlooking them. Therefore, depending on your budget , you can buy an expensive one, or you can buy at least the 6300 and OC it.

Decide, and font be in harry if you can save and buy better CPU.

Both CPUs are good. What I will say is that stick to price.

its funny the only people recommending the 6300 are the people that have the 6300 tongue.gif -- (i didnt chose the 8320 cause i have it ... its just more logical to go with 8 core vs 6 core :$)

This. Its just 30 more for 2 more cores.
If i think about the price differents between the i5-3570k and i7-3770k compared to performance.. the decision with the 6300 vs 8350 is easy.

The only reason to go FX-6300 is if you're on a really tight budget. If you disable cores on a FX-8320, it's the same as a FX-6300.

edit: FX-6300 is cheaper $60 at Microcenter because the FX-8320 doesn't have a combo deal for $40 off motherboards ; Intel i5-3570K and i7-3770K only have $40 difference between them also ($190 vs $230) but the i7 no longer seems to have the $40 off motherboards

It's obvious that the 8320 is superior due to more cores. If you aren't really a future proofer and more concerned about budget and if this cpu will handle everything you throw at it currently then it is a winner.

In my opinion the few extra dollars spent to get 2 more cores is more than worth it plus you can say you have eight cores.

I have personally had a 6300 and now have an 8320. Ran the 6300 overclocked at 4.2 and 4.5 GHz briefly before my motherboard could not regulate its voltage anymore and said it didn't want my CPU in there anymore. Went out and got an 8320 since it was on sale for 149.99 at microcenter. Started benchmarking it and found that the FX-6300 at 4.2-4.5GHz had similar performance to the 8320 at 3.5GHz stock. So I can fully attest to the fact that yes they are identical in terms of the core structure and yes the 6300 uses less power. But with the 8 cores you just have a more powerful CPU that will perform much better on CPU intensive programs and games. Many MMOs are overly CPU heavy in comparison to a standard game which is GPU heavy.

I say, as someone who has had and used both processors, get the 8320, you wont be disappointed. Although it is a higher watt processor I am able to hit same speeds at the same voltages that I did on my 6300. 4.2GHz at 1.375v with LLC on ultra high. 4.5GHz at 1.4v or 1.425v depending on my ambient temps. For me, heat is whats holding my overclock back. Need a better cooler or just wait till I finish my water cooling loop.
