Phenom II X4 965BE vs FX 6300

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello guys.

Is the FX-6300 much better than the 965BE for gaming? I will mostly use both at stock speeds since I'm on a really low budget and can't afford an OC-Reliable motherboard.

The money that separates both it's really important to me. Is the effort worth to get the 6300 over the 965BE?

I'll be using it with an HD 7770 OC (1150/1250), 4GB's of ram and, as I said above, a budget motherboard.

Thanks in advance.

The FX-6300 is an all around better gaming cpu. It will be a bit faster in older games and way faster in newer multithreaded titles. Most of time you will be gpu limited with that 7770 but get to Crysis 3,BF3 or some other ultra cpu intensive game and you'll see solid gains going FX.

What kind of budget motherboard?
I'd go with the 965 BE
The difference is very minimal in games.Some favor Deneb,Some favor Orochi.
The 965 BE does daily things faster, too.
Large percentage of price for minimal percentage of power.
$$ to computing power..965
Still a beast of a chip,4 years later.
Newer doesn't necessarily mean better;especially in this case.

This is really close to a dead heat. The 6300 will work better as new software releases and moves toward heavier multi-threading. The 965 works better with older software designed for single threading. Personally I would look forward with my PC and go with the 6300.

So far only game that maxed out my phenom II was the crysis 3(fps was like 25-40fps so yes it was playable). Other games are fine. And when going hexa core I would go Phenom II x6 way. After OC it will smash fx-6300.

FX6300! Newer architecture, instructions, and multi threaded applications will benefit from its 6 cores. Also, make sure to overclock it, I got to 4.5Ghz stable with mine, and I still haven't found the max stable overclock.
