Alrighty, so I've been wanting to upgrade my CPU lately. I've been looking at the AMD FX-8350 but that runs at about $170. I've also been looking at the FX-6300 which is about $70 cheaper. I mainly use my computer for gaming, rarely do I render videos, or use photoshop. So basically what I'm wanting is a good cpu that will give me higher fps, performance, faster loading, blah blah. Is the 8350 really worth the extra 70 bucks for current games? I've read a few reviews and comparisons on people saying current games don't even use the 8 cores the 8350 provides. So would it be a better decision to go with the 6300? With my current motherboard I know I would have to upgrade it as well to be able to run the 8350. If they're any other cpu's below $170 that you guys think would be a better buy then let me know! Here are my specs: I'm running a Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1 CPU AMD FX-4130 GRAPHICS AMD RADEON HD 7950 MOTHERBOARD Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 RAM 8.00GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 802MHz STORAGE 465GB Western Digital WDC WD5000AAKX-00ERMA0 ATA Device (SATA) Hopefully that's everything you need to give me a good idea. I'd rather not spend the money on a new motherboard, but if it's worth it, I will. Also, if you guys have any suggestions on other upgrades, like my ram or hd, let me know! Thank you.
