my budget is 300$ for cpu
 


Agreed. This will be what I go for. Unless you are a heavy video editor/productivity user, you will likely not utilize all 8 cores to their full potential.

But if it is for streaming, then the extra threads are very useful if he is using x264 encoding on the CPU whilst gaming.
So, he is going to need those threads for streaming. I've got a 8c/16t CPU, and it is being almost fully utilized when I'm recording games like BF3/4, because the encoding alone needs half the CPU.
