I have acquired a MSI ATX DDR3 2133 Motherboard 970 GAMING motherboard. And am looking for the best (mid-range budget) CPU and Video card to add to this.
I'm trying to build an entry level gaming system, so would like something decent that would perform nice.

Any and all suggestions will be helpful!!! I would love to hear pro's and con's of items.


so far, I have looked at :


AMD FD6300WMHKBOX FX-6300 6-Core Processor Black Edition ,

Amd Fx-8320 125 Am3+ 125 16mb 3500 ,

and GPU wise...I've looked at 

ASUS Radeon R7 370 Strix OC 4GB 5.7GHZ GDDR5 2xDVI HDMI DisplayPort PCI-E Video Card,

 

would like to stay with a radeon series card, but open to suggestions.
 

P.S. I have a Ultra 750 watt psu, and AeroCool Open Frame Design PC Cases StrikeX-Air Black/Red, to go with it.

Thanks for any help!

Hi and welcome to BleepingComputer!

 

Both CPU are very good. FX 8320 has 2 more cores than the FX 6300 and both has the same base clock speed. You will get better performance with 8320 in multi-threaded applications. In single-threaded applications you are not going to see any differences between two.

 

If you want more single core performance than go for the FX 4300, it has fewer core but higher clock speed. You are likely to get better performance with this CPU in single-threaded apps.

 

R7 370 is a mid-range graphics card, capable of running most games in medium settings. If you like to run games at high graphics, R9 380 is a very good choice. For future-proofing I would buy R9 390, it can last you for years. If you prefer Nvidia graphics card, GTX 960 and 970 are both good choice.

 

If you would like to get the best GPU for your need, tell me what applications you use, and what games you will play on your PC.

Thanks for the input.  As for gaming..

 

I usually play World of Tanks, Diablo III, Minecraft (heh) ,  World of Warcraft.  

So I usually like decent graphic performance.  They don't need to be ultra high end, hence the reason I was looking at the r7 370.  

 

So , the fx 6300 seems to be the choice so far.  Am on sort of a budget so, buying the pieces slowly.  

 

Thanks for the suggestions!

 

How is this processor?  

Amd Fx 6-Core Black Edition,Am3+ Fx-6350 3.9/4.2g ,95w, 32nm, 6mb L2 / 8mb L3, HEAT SINK FAN

FX 6350 is about the same as 6300 but higher binned. You are not going to see differences between these processors. You can just buy FX 6300 and overclock it to the level of 6350.

 

For the GPU R7 370 can play these games fine.

In single-threaded applications and games, you will see better performance in FX 4300 or 4350 because of higher clock speed. Most games still single-threaded, you get faster gameplay in 4300, but usually not noticeable. This might be changed in future when games starting use multiple cores.

 

FX 4350 is 4300 but higher binned. Just buy the cheapest and overclock it and it will beat the more expensive one. :)

To be honest, go cheap.  The games you're looking at don't require much in terms of graphics, or in terms of CPU.  You should be fine with a low-mid range graphics card, then just upgrade in 2-3 years.
