    Default Picking a Processor

    Okay, So i can't decide whether I should get a 6 core AMD FX-6300, or spend the extra 30 or so and get an 8 core AMD FX-8320. If i chose to go with the 6 core, how much performance would I lose? Or on the other end, how much would i gain with the 8 core? Thanks

    Also, before anyone says it, don't tell me to get an Intel CPU. I keep seeing that, and I know an Intel would be better, but honestly, I Cant afford it at all.

    Are they recent titles? Do you plan to overclock? What graphics card are you looking at?

    Some recent, yes.
    If i get the fx-8320, then ill get the MSI Radeon R9 270X 2GB TWIN FROZR Video Card
    If i get the fx-6300, then ill get the Gigabyte Radeon R9 280 3GB WINDFORCE Video Card
    and im unlikely to overclock

    6300 and 280x is perfect if gaming. even 6 cores is overkill, you'd be fine with a quad.

    So should i go with the 6 core instead, and put more into the GPU?

    Most definitely, the GPU is where you are supposed to put most of your money in a gaming rig.
