So im still in the progress of saving up for a new build, and ive hit a bit of a snag: Choosing a processor. Right now, my options are narrowed down to the AMD FX-8530 or the FX-6300. Now, my issue is, i cant seem to find anything that swing it one way or the other. Ideally, im dropping one or the other into a Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 playing with a 8 or so gigs of ram and a Radeon 7870. So, does anybody have any experience to swing it one way or the other? My qualifications are i do a bit of everything, eg gaming, video editing, etc, and i want this rig to run as good as possible for as long as possible. I just cant decide if the extra $80 is completely worth it looking at real-world bencmarks. And before it gets thrown out there, i know that (insert Intel chip here) would be better. I just dont have the kind of money to drop on a high-end i7 and AMD has server me well so far. Thanks in advance!

Check out the analysis at CPUboss.com:

If you go with the FX 6300, apply the extra $80 towards a better GPU.

Hope this helps.
