Which FX to buy for gaming and every day tasks???

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
So I am on sort of a tighter budget, I am 17 years old, just got a small promotion, and I think my spending limit would be around 300-325 bucks for a new Mobo (need am3+) and ram and a new processor.


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?

That question is super easy for me to answer. I strongly reccommend the Sabertooth 990FX and the FX8350. Those two are just monsters together! Look at the overclock links in my signature. That is what they can be capable of together, and I seriously didt need to try too hard for those and havent fiddled too much with them to lower volts or anything. 

 

The Sabertooth has a REV. 2 now thats even better. The 8350 performs very well in many tasks. When I play Dirt 3 at 4.8GHz and my GTX660 mildly OCed I get well over 100FPS at 1080p. It utilizes all my cores which average somewhere around 50% usage. Pair the 8350 with a Silver arrow or a Phanteks dual tower cooler and you will have a killer combination. 

 

 

Let me just beat everyone else to the punch and say: "Sell both of your kidneys, throw away your old rig and buy an intel CPU!"

lol yeah i very much like my kidneys, but thank you for your input! Its a friggin monster haha, thats probably the rout I will be going. I am very frugal, so, (obviously besides the lacking of 2 cores) at the same clock speeds, would I see a noticable difference, ie, worth the 60 bucks upgrade if I were to get a 6300 with the Sabertooth board?

It depends on what you are using it for. I can't really answer the question, because, I havent used the 6300 or anything, but the 8XXX FX series. I would think that you wouldnt see a very big difference though.

TigerDirect has the AMD FX 8320 for $149. It can be clocked upwards to FX 8350 levels to save some money. About fifty bucks worth, actually.

Promo code required. NWJ81883

hello,
its easier to match cpu to mobo than think of single chip, £100 mobo with £100 mojo is the way things are. which mobo you getting or using please?
also, its near the same with intel.

Since your budget is $325, if you can put around $12 extra, this would be great:

GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 - $138

And of course, the FX8350 - $200

However if you plan on overclocking, the FX8320 ($175) would be much better since it's basically a FX8350 at lower clocks.

No reason to pay for the FX 8350 when the 8320 is fifty cheaper and an equal performer when oc'ed.
