get the 6300 it will be a huge jump compared to the Athlon x4,,the 8320 will only multitask better than the 6300,,,i wouldn't overclock with that board you have

Tnx for the advice the problem overhere is that the 6300 retails for $180 and the 8320 $230 big jump to an 8350 to $280.Had the 645 running on this board at 3.76Mz run prime95 for 1 hour and the top temp was 67C so yes its not grt but not to shabby overall I guess have to save for a decent board.Hope I get a 13th cheque this year LOL
