As a current owner of an FX-6350 I HIGHLY recommend AGAINST getting one. (Or any current AMD CPU for that matter). Even at 4.7GHz it's a massive bottleneck for even a 770 (680). You'd be MUCH better off getting a used i5 from sandy bridge or later. I know they are still around $150, and that you can't get a decent motherboard with $50. BUT If you were able to increase your budget by 50 or 60 USD you can afford something in an entirely different league than AMD.

Seriously, you'll be kicking yourself later going AMD. I know I am.

I did a little checking around and I found this MB to go with an i5 2500k http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B007MKGF82/ Description says a pin was broke, but is a "spare" and that it works like new. Great seller feedback and I see many more listings of this nature from this guy. The best part is that it's $76. Combine that with $144 i5 2500k and you've got yourself a $220 upgrade! http://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-Core-i5-2500K-3-3GHz-Quad-Core-Socket-1155-LGA1155-SR008-CPU-Processor-/251969669727
If that's not to your liking just Make sure to check Ebay, Amazon and the Overclock Marketplace. thumb.gif
Then again if you can save up a little more and extend your budget to $300 you can get a brand new i5 4690k and ASUS Z97 MB at microcenter... a very tempting deal indeed. biggrin.gif

Either way, Good luck!

That being said, the OP is not going to find a better deal <$200 for new parts, which I'd strongly recommend he uses instead of used parts of questionable origin.

Seriously, I'm losing 15-35fps getting crap like 70-80% GPU utilization in BF4 in certain areas. I'd say probably a third of the time I'm bottlenecked below 50fps. Doesn't matter what settings.

I probably should have gotten a V8, but I said "Oh hey! 6 cores is more than Intel's 4 cores, games are multithreaded now! It'll overclock well!1!!" Like every noob says until they experience the real world and learn from their mistakes.
Don't make the same mistake I did. Because that's exactly what it would be. A mistake.

The only exception to this is if you TRULY do not care if you can't pass 30-50fps no matter what settings you use or what GPU you have in the future. If that doesn't matter to you then get an Intel Pentium G3258 with a good MB and overclock it to at least 4.5GHz. You'll outperform an FX-8350 at half the cost or come pretty darn close.
Be efficient.

some 2500k + p67 board? he said used and with $200 I'd say he's right to be looking for 2nd hand stuff. If you want new, get that unlocked Pentium and a board that'll let you get it to 4.4GHz. Actually this g3258 is only 70 bucks, add 45 bucks for thermalright macho 120 (I can vouch for this cooler) and 85 bucks left for a board. ASRock z97 anniversary is close to $85 and based on z97 (cheaper than asus or gigabyte), you can also find plenty of h97 boards in that price range. This way you'll have all that you need (board/cooler) to get an unlocked i5/i7 in the future. 4th gen i3 is also nice but it's locked, I suppose 4.4 GHz pentium 2c/2t will be better for gaming than 3.8 GHz i3 2c/4t. It might change once dx12 hits but so far nobody knows, and if they say they do they're just flattering themselves. Broadwell and Skylake will be launched soon, that'll probably push 4690k's price down a bit, although it already is very affordable considering it's a premium quality, high end chip once you get it overclocked right.
If you're absolutely certain that you're not gonna be upgrading later on then get the 2500k + p67/z77, but this could be risky cause you'll be buying 2nd hand. If getting the 4690k is (financially) an option for later this year or early 2016 then g3258+cooling+h97 board has a nice upgrade path, and coming from q6600 will definitely give you a huge boost.

The g3258 is a nice, fun, chip. I own one and it performs well in many situations but struggles in others, much like you'd think a dual core CPU would in 2015.

I'm going to bow out of this one after this post, because for <$200, a new, overclocked 8320e is going to be the best bang for your buck for everyday computer use, regardless of upgrade path.

Seems like the best way to go here. The G3258 route is probably best, then parlay that into a 4690k when prices drop after the Skylake launch. However, be very aware that newer games are hard coding a requirement for 4 cores to even run, so even though the G3258 is a strong chip, you'll have to grab the 4690k relatively soon.
Nothing wrong with the 2500k, great chip, but I'd be cautious with the P67 boards, as all of them should be out of warranty by now.
The 8320 option is perhaps the best bang for the buck (that gives you full warranty), but, AM3+ is a dead end socket, and every day that goes by, it seems to make less and less sense to invest in the platform from the ground floor.
