cpu choices

Discussion created by hardcoregames™ on Oct 5, 2014

I see that the 32nm processors are less expensive, so I am considering a new one. I can afford the FX-6300 easily, looks like its a bin down from the 8 core processors.

Those FX 9000 models are too much of a power pig for my aspirations.

The FX-6300 is less power hungry than my Phenom with more L3 and 2 more cores.

The cost of the 8 core models is not very favorable so the binned CPU seems to be the best buy.

What kind of OC can I expect from the FX-6300? Does it like my RAM any better than my Phenom?
