Woah woah woah. I never, ever recommended this CPU. If you check a few pages back on this very same thread the post #4
you'll see that 4 days ago I said an OC'ed G3258 is on par with a stock i3. Stock i3 runs on stock heatsink and on any motherboard.
So please don't put words in my mouth.

. So what i am trying to tell you that for people who will use midrange GPU or lower (GTX 770/R9 280X) i3 or even FX 6300 is right choice. I prefer i3 for them (better MB)... but you cannot say that FX 6300 dont represent best build for midrange GPU.
even older i3 will destroy OCed pentium in new well optimized games.
If you want to say what is on bold you could've just said it. If you roll a few pages back you'll find a post of mine saying that an unlocked i3 would murder everything out there for gaming.
So I am most certainly on the same page as you, performance wise the i3 is always better. Longevity wise too. It is also simpler, it needs no overclocking.
But like I said, this CPU is something to play with... so yea...
