I have a PNY GTX 660 Ti Performance Edition that I would like to pair with a low budget FX cpu/mobo strictly for light gaming...nothing else. The gaming is mainly on-line games like Heroes and Generals and World of Warships/Tanks etc. This is not a longevity PC and eventually will build a complete Intel setup for my son to replace this when he graduates. I have read many forums where they say the FX 6300 is great for budget but has a hard time with some games (tearing etc.). So I'm looking between the FX 6300, 8320 and 8350. Has anybody had this setup and how well did it work in most games? Not spending more than $350 for the setup.
Thanks in advance.

so what are you going to try and get out of your 350? with 350 you can defninantly get some good budget intel CPU's and motherboards that will tear AMD apart.

do you have some ram that you are planning on using?

The FX series are really poor for Gaming, i should get a intel processor. The multitasking is great for for the budget on FX series, but for gaming you don't use all cores and since AMD has alot slower cores than intel it might be smart to get a i3 4370 3.80GHz

I think everyone here agrees that the 6100 is great for the purpose of this PC.

you are wrong. the 4370 is haswell and the 6100 is skylake, and of course skylake is going to be faster in single core performance, as its newer and better.
the 4370 is better in multi core operations, buts its also more expensive and uses older RAM.

not a fan of you deleting your previous comment, but whatever. im just trying to tell you that the 6100 is better in all ways, and that CPU boss is never right.
