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.

If you have the processor affinity set it will use all 8 cores. If you watch the CPU load across all cores while you are gaming, you can see the last 2-4 cores actually working. Each core is metered separately. Some games you need to change the config, but you can set different stuff to run on all cores. I was running 2 VMs @ 4GB ram each and 2 cores and skyrim on the last 4 cores and 8GB ram and my load wasn't even maxed out.

I have been experiementing a little with performance by running games with 4 cores vs 6 cores vs 8 cores (turning cores off in BIOS) But I haven't noticed games run any different. The chip just runs cooler

Fair enough. If you want to go 8 core the 8350 is a better choice. But the 8320 will do fine.

The 8320 is the better all around chip, but if its pretty much just a gaming rig you will not see any benefit with the 8 cores in gaming. In that case I would go for the 6350 and save a few bucks! smile.gif I really think you'd be more than satisfied with the 6350.

its not that great of mobo due to its 4+1 Phase CPU Power design so i wouldnt overclock on it. might be ok for stock since it supports 125W TDP CPU's tho maybe look for a 970 and up chipset IMO

Oh, I did not read all of this thread and it appears you've already picked a CPU. Listen to stubass and get at least a 4+2 power phase board like ASUS M5a97 R2 which is very affordable. You'll regret it in the long run if you don't.

might be ok since GB uses decent VRMs and is a very light OC.
