Hi guys,

I am updating my PC for gaming and I need the amd fx 6350 CPU. Can't seem to find it anywhere new (chip shortage?)- is it safe to buy it refurbished from somewhere like ebay?

Thank you!

Based on your other post, are you just looking at the system requirements for a game?

You don't have to follow that, get something newer and faster. You can easily get double the performance with any of the entry level Ryzen chips, even old ones.

I bought one of them fx-6350's came with a gigbyte 970A-dsp3 ver1 mobo I paid about 50 quid for it of ebay.
I bought it as an upgrade to my aging phenom 965 on paper when you look at cpu comparison sites the 6350 seems a better cpu
but in reality it feels like the 965 oc'd to 4.0ghz was quicker than the 6350 oc'd to 4.1ghz both setups use the same psu, memory and gpu.
I don't think I'm a demanding user by any stretch just want to be able to play fallout 4, cities skylines and elite dangerous at full beans.
If you can try and get a few more quid together and maybe get a complete plug and play low to mid range ryzen 3 setup I wish I had now.
