which cpu is better to go with??? - Page 4

FX-6350 is more than good enough for gaming, if you plan to video render or crunch numbers for science then perhaps the 8350 would benefit you. With your GPU the FX-6350 is a perfect match, just make sure you get a 970 or higher (990FX) chipset motherboard.

That should be fine. I would still suggest a 6350 because it'll be a bit faster for games than the 8320, unless you find a game that can utilize all 8 cores of the 8320.

I would suggest this PSU:

why he will be a bit faster?

Because as mentioned before the 8320 and the 6350 have the exact same cores, the 8320 is just underclocked. So any game that uses 6 or less cores will work better with the 6350. Most games use 4 or less cores at the moment.

I got an 8350 stock at 4GHz and its totally worth it. It crushes any game I have thrown at it. It never hits 100% load. usually around 15-30% in game and a ton running in the background.

It never hits full load because the games don't use all 8 cores, which is also why you can run a lot of things in the background. The 8350 is a great processor, so if you want to do a lot of multitasking while gaming it could be a better choice, also its more future proof.

I bought an 8120 for my server because I have my racing simulator hooked up to it which uses 4 cores. I needed the other 4 cores to run my minecraft server, TF2 server, and any other multitasking I wanted to do. If you're only going to play games and maybe a bit of multitasking at the same time, go for the 6350. If you need to run a lot of things at once, or want something more future proof, go for the 8350. But both are great choices.
