wow there, caps broken? anyway, here are some benchmarks of the two chips using performance test
http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=AMD+Phenom+II+X4+955
http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=AMD+FX-6300+Six-Core

according to cpubenchmark.net the Phenom II 955 scores about a 4000, while the FX 6300 scores a 6500. that is around a 62%-63% increase, so if you have the proper motherboard, i would say that it is worth it. if you can wait though, AMD is about to release steamroller at the end of the year, and they are going to outperform piledriver by a great amount.

according to cpubenchmark.net, the FX 8350 scores about 9150, while the 6300 scores about a 6500. that is about a 40% increase. although it has a great increase in performance, for what you are doing you arent going to notice a difference because i doubt blops 2 and gmod can utilize 8 cores.

i personally would overclock your 955 (because it isnt that bad of a processor) and wait until the next generation of processors to come out.
