i was thinking to get pentium G3258 + GTX 750Ti for my friend... but i dont know how good will be against FX 6300 in newer games, while he play LoL,.... but he also wants to try watchdogs,GTA V, Dragon Age ...
Watch Dogs? not going to happen, it seems it relies heavily on multi-threading.
What Dragon Age? and we don't know GTA V will perform.
The G3258 will perform really well in most games against most AMD CPUs since it's multi-threaded performance has the capability to contest or even beat stock or not so high clocked quad cores like the Phenom II and FX series, it's single-threaded is some of the best you can get since It's Haswell, this is seen from how it's beating my Phenom II in most games and in other benchmarks from review sites where it's giving those CPUs a beatdown, it could also be possible those CPUs aren't being used to their fullest potential, when I ran Watch Dogs and disabled one of my cores on my X4 B55 there was little to no performance loss, which makes me wonder what it was loading the fourth core with.
This isn't the most future-proof CPU and we currently don't know how well newer games will perform on on this or AMD CPUs even though the next generation consoles have 8 cores(6 usable by games and developers), I think in most cases where the 6320 and 8320 aren't used to to their fullest potential (only 3-4 cores used) which is in quite a lot of current games this CPU will likely pull ahead in most cases because of it's single-threaded performance.
And when considering the G3258 you've got to know what you're going to use it for.
For future-proofing purposes, I'd say go for the FX 6300, although that chip may be sitting on a seemingly dead platform with the only viable and decent upgrade path of an 8320, period.
For a possible placebo or a quick get by which will perform well in a lot of current games and may perform a little poor in games which rely heavily on multi-threading and multi-cores but also has a brilliant upgrade path of many CPUs, the G3258 will likely be an attractive option, you can upgrade to an i3(although it may not be worth it much), and an i5 or i7, locked or K chips.
In gaming AMD's been pretty much been playing catchup with Intel ever since Sandybridge hit, and hit hard, so hard that some people don't even feel the need to upgrade from their 2500K or 2600K. Imo going Intel is worthwhile, because once you've got a I5 K chip of sandy to haswell you're pretty much set CPU-wise in gaming these days unless you're throwing boatloads of GPU power into your rig.Edited by TopicClocker - 7/11/14 at 9:07am
