I am getting at least a 6300, but am having a hard time deciding between
The 6300, about $140 on newegg
or the 8350, about $200 on newegg.
I am going o get an aftermarket cooler and overclock them as much as I can, right now, I am running a 965 OC to 4.1ghz...and render times in AE is retardedly slow...and I would like to get a new processor that would improve this and my gaming framerates. (YES. I KNOW, gfx card will make the best improvement, but I am pretty satisfied with my 955mhz gtx 570 right now, and my framerates are damn good at 1080p. If i get a little bump, I will be happy until I get a 670).
Here is my build (Sig not completely accurate)
AMD Phenom II x4 965 @ 4.13ghz
CM Hyper 212+
12gb 1333mhz memory
gtx 570 1.2gb OC 955mhz/2100mhz @ 1.1v
I am in need of a CPU upgrade, along with a good mobo. Any suggestions to which PILEDRIVER cpu I should get? Would six cores suffice, and should I spend the 60 bucks on a better mobo or towards my gtx 670?
