The FX-6300 vs FX-8320

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm currently building a budget computer for my friend, I was wondering if they would be any difference between the FX-6300 and FX-8320 with these specs:


2GB MSI GTX 670 O.C. Edition
Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3
8GB (2x4GB) DDR3-1600

If it makes any difference, I'm planning on overclocking either CPU with a Hyper 212.

The games it will be playing are:
CS:GO, Payday 2, BF4

What is your price difference between the two? I would choose the 8320. Better binned easier overclocks. Thats not to say the 6300 is a slouch Ive had both and liked both.

The AMD FX-8320 is a much more powerful processor with two more cores than the AMD FX-6300 but it really boils down to your budget. If you can afford the 8320 then by all means, go that route.
